Selkirk’s business administration students squared off against one another at the college’s sixth annual business competition held at its Castlegar campus at the end of the term.

First-year students competed for the best marketing campaign, while second-year students strove for best business case analysis. Working in teams, students prepared campaigns and business solutions ahead of time and gave 15 minute presentations to a panel of judges on the day of the event. Leaders from the local business community served as judges for the competition.

Krys Klimuk, named Judge’s Choice for Top Student, values the business competition.

“The annual competition has been the best experience for me at Selkirk. It gave me an opportunity to use everything I’ve learned throughout the school year in a single event.”

Delighted winners took home almost $6,000 in cash, tuition credits and door prizes.

For the marketing campaign category (year one), Visionary Consultants placed first (Sydney Dilling, Brielle Hwalstad, and Kailyn Zanier), SRC won second place (Jonathan Chung, Evan Richtsfeld, and Jacob Swanson) and Prestige Worldwide received third place (Chelsea Brown, Travis Herlein, and Spenser Wong).

In the best business case category (year two), Framework won the top spot (Krys Klimuk and Trenton Zoobkoff), Imprint placed second (Kris Kolesnikoff, Reg Goldsbury, and Leah Streichert) and third place went to Innovation Consultation (Misha Amos, Bayan Pourmokhtari, Amanda Hyslop, and Cyndel Miller).
