Professional Distinction in Sales – Sales Cup

The Sales Cup is the competitive part of the Professional Distinction in Sales program.  In addition to earning the professional distinction, students will be competing for cash awards for earning the most points within each division.  The Sales Cup competition will be divided into four divisions based on classification.  (All U1 students will compete against other U1 students.  All U2 students will participate against U2 students, etc.)  Winners will be based on points earned during the Fall and Spring semesters of the current academic year. Prizes for the Sales Cup will be awarded at the END of the academic school year.  Prizes for each division will look like this:

Congratulations to Scott Richards ’20 our 2019-2020 Sales Cup Champion!

 

In addition, at the end of the academic year there will be an Overall Sales Cup Champion.  That Champion will earn an additional $1,000 plus their own personal Sales Cup trophy, as well as have their name placed on the Sales Cup.

The total prize purse for the year is $8,000.

If there is a points tie within the division (i.e., classification), there will be an independently judged competition for the tiebreaker.  If there is a tie within the 1st place winners, there will be an independently judged competition for the tiebreaker.  The student with the highest number of overall points is the Sales Cup Champion.

Distinction points are tabulated in eCampus.  You are encouraged to keep track of your points throughout the semester to ensure we have an accurate accounting of all points.  Award winners will be presented their prizes at the mandatory Awards Celebration in April.
