GROWMARK Supports North American Student Agribusiness Sales Competition

GROWMARK Supports North American Student Agribusiness Sales Competition

Winners from universities across the United States and Canada just announced

Bloomington, Ill. (April 21, 2021) – GROWMARK is a proud supporter of the National Agri-Marketing Association Collegiate Sales Competition, which announced winners from around North America this week.

This was the second year for the event, which was held virtually April 14th and 15th with judges from GROWMARK and AgReliant Genetics, both sponsors of the contest. Students were given a certain amount of time for a sales pitch, in front of the judges, in which they were evaluated on presentation, business knowledge, and public speaking skills.

“NAMA has long hosted a Marketing Competition for member universities and branched out into the sales arena recently,” said NAMA Executive Vice President/CEO Jenny Pickett. “It seeks to advance the practice and professionalism of selling and the sales profession.”

“The NAMA experience for the students is something that as they move into the professional world puts them on a different level from others who don’t have that experience,” added GROWMARK Corporate Communications Manager Amy Bradford. “So we were really excited to continue GROWMARK’s sponsorship of this competition.”
