Student NAMA Chapters Compete & Learn

Jamie Johansen

The number of hours Student NAMA Chapters put into the national marketing competition in preparation for the Agri-Marketing Conference each year is countless. However, that endurance, research and simple practice pay off.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison brought home this year’s first-place honors with their marketing plan for a ready-to-drink protein enhanced thickened wine called Good Life. Thickened wine? Yes, you read that correctly, I had many questions myself. Listen to my complete interview with the entire Wisconsin NAMA team below. And help me welcome them all to the #GoldenMic Club.

Let’s also give a shout out to the other finalists and award winners.
