The Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up could not be held without the financial support of our corporate sponsors. We are grateful to them and their employees who assist with buying and judging activities, staff tables during the Career Fair, provide professional development workshops, and attend dinners and other networking events. Thank you to the following organizations for supporting our college sales competition.

Trivia Give Aways

As part of our Warm-Up Trivia Contest (which occurs while our three finalists are preparing for their last sales call), we give away door prizes donated from sponsors and participating schools. Please bring a couple items from your company that would be appropriate, e.g., water bottles, mugs, umbrellas, whatever you think the students might enjoy taking home with them. Bring them to the opening reception and we'll handle it from there.

Judging Information

Each judge will only be viewing one of the two sales scenarios. Your feedback to each of our participating students makes this a very special event. Please be in your assigned rooms 10 minutes before your session begins.

This brief video outlines some important points. We will also have a short judges meeting after the opening reception to review some items and answer questions.
