Sales Cup

The UW-Whitewater Sales Cup is a points based system through which active participants are eligible for approximately $20,000-25,000 in cash awards.  The cash awards are graciously provided by our UWW Institute for Sales Excellence Partners.

Process

Students earn points by participating in Sales Institute activities, including sales competitions, certificate programs, interview days, job shadowing, and company visits.  In May of 2017, points will be totaled and the top 20-25 students will earn a cash award.   December 2016 graduates will also be considered.
