Juno Jesuthasan, and Chris Carre took the Gold award in the Entrepreneurship event, Crystal Bennett took the Silver award in the Job Interview event,

More than 250 marketing and marketing-related students from 13 Ontario colleges compete in 11 challenging events at the annual Ontario College’s Marketing Competition.
The annual marketing competition is a two day event with students competing first in the wildly popular Quiz Bowl Event which pits four-person randomly chosen mixed-college teams in a highly entertaining and challenging ten round elimination match. The purpose of the lightning quick event is to answer marketing factoid questions taken from three current marketing textbooks and current issues of Marketing Magazine and Strategy Magazine.
The second day of the Ontario Colleges’ Marketing Competition is centred around nine prepared Case Events where students take real world case scenarios and prepare marketing solutions for a panel of judges selected from industry professionals, and a Job Interview event where students prepare to interview for an entry-level marketing position.
The last event of the OCMC is the gala Awards Banquet and the awarding of the coveted prizes for the marketing events. This year 13 Ontario colleges brought together more than 400 students, staff, and faculty in the Mohawk College hosted event. Sheridan College will host the 2010 Ontario Colleges’ Marketing Competition.
