Cameron Wedde, of New York Mills, a North Dakota State University senior in business administration, recently participated in the Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up, a collegiate competition for students interested in sales as a profession.

Shane Ward, Bismarck, N.D., an NDSU senior in psychology, also participated.

Forty-eight college students from 15 schools in 10 states competed for cash prizes and the title of top salesperson at the sixth University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up. The event was held Nov. 8-10 on the Eau Claire campus.

"Both Shane and Cameron did a fantastic job. They represented NDSU very professionally and were recognized by many of the competition's judges and sponsors," said Mike Krush, assistant professor of marketing and faculty coach.

The highest scoring individual from each participating school, excluding the top overall winners, was named "school champion."

NDSU received a trophy and $150 cash prize.
