Conestoga Marketing Team Takes Silver in Provincial Competition

The annual Ontario Colleges Marketing Competition (OCMC) is a showcase for the best and brightest marketing students from the province’s community colleges. The event allows participants to test and apply their skills in practical contests adjudicated by marketing professionals.

In the recently concluded OCMC 2001, held November 15-16 at Centennial College in Scarborough, the team from Conestoga College continued its record of success with a silver medal performance. Conestoga finished second at the 2000 and 1999 OCMC as well, and won the provincial event in 1998 and 1997.

In all, there were eleven events at the two-day contest. Conestoga participants placed in four events -- the retail case study, the sales management case study, the direct marketing case study and the marketing simulation game.

Besides their silver medals, each Conestoga participant received a membership in the Canadian Marketing
Association (CMA).

The 16 members of Conestoga’s OCMC 2001 team, all students in the Business Administration -Marketing program at the Doon campus in Kitchener, are: third-year students Steve Boyer of Kitchener, Kathryn Corso of Waterloo, Carissa Drohan of Guelph, Kevin Entz of Bright, Steve Haggart of Paris, Brooke Hulme of Kitchener, Peter Hwang of Kincardine, Asta Kryzanauskas of Arthur, Kelly McMahon of Guelph, Trevor Newman of Belwood, Jake Reimer of Drayton, T.J.
