Red River College students nearly swept a national marketing competition.
The RRC student teams claimed prizes 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th in the studentsverbcharities.ca competition.
The competition, sponsored by the Muttart Foundation and Imagine Canada, asked post-secondary student teams from across the country to design a public awareness campaign about the charitable sector’s impact on our quality of life.
The first prize team – Emily Doer, Courtney Brecht and Corinne Rikkelmann from RRC’s creative communications program – earned $50,000 in prize money, with the other four teams sharing $40,000.
The RRC sweep was interrupted by a team from the University of Victoria, who earned $10,000 for their third-place finish.
