We are hosting this event in our brand new state-of-the-art  Keller Business Building at UVU for all high school DECA or FBLA students, or other high school students interested in studying business.

We have teamed up with our corporate case sponsors and local entertainment leader, Utah Jazz, for this event and will be giving out lots of cool prizes including $11000 in scholarship money, cool swag, prizes, and gift cards.

The competition will run on a Friday from 9am to 1pm and will be totally free for your students. We will provide lunch during the awards ceremony from 1240pm to 130pm. We will be holding this catered lunch on the 4th floor  of our new Keller Business building.

Competitions will include:

  • Marketing strategy case competition
  • Sales Presentation Competition
  • Resume competition,
  • Interview competition
  • Elevator pitch competition. 
  • T-Shirt artwork design competition 
  • Product Design and Advertising competition. 
  • Social Media Competition
  • Information booth scavenger hunt. 

The only competitions that will require prior team preparation will be the marketing case competition and T Shirt Design Competition, which we will post 2 weeks in advance.  The resume and Interview/personal pitch competition will require some individual preparation to customize a resume and elevator pitch to suit our sponsor job description, which we will provide 2 weeks before the event. The rest of the competitions will be presented and completed on the day.

In between competitions, the students will enjoy exploring the Keller Business Building in the form of a Scavenger Hunt,  visiting our Smartlab, Greenhouse, Professional Sales Program, MBA Office, Money Success Center, Academic Tutoring, WSB Writing Lab, UVU Application station, Women in Business Center, and also enjoy various games, karaoke, treats, soda bar, froyo, photo wall, etc.
