NAMA LogoHopefully in 2022 we’ll be able to “see” the National Agri-Marketing Association student competitions. But that doesn’t mean that are not happening this year. In fact, the winners of the Student NAMA Sales Competition have been announced. The competition took place April 14-15, virtually, and over 20 students were registered.

​The National Agri-Marketing Association Collegiate Sales Competition began in 2019. NAMA has long hosted a Marketing Competition for member universities and branched out into the sales arena. It seeks to advance the practice and professionalism of selling and the sales profession. The NAMA Sales competition is a basic sales call skills challenge for individual contestants. For your sales folks, how do you think they did?
