The CRS Collegiate Challenge
CRS typically hosts two collegiate challenges each year. Challenges are open to undergraduate students from any 2 or 4-year university. Students are invited to compete in teams of 3-4 and need to have the support of a faculty advisor.
Competitions are sponsored by a retail organization. Past and future sponsoring organizations are Sherwin-Williams, Walmart, Clemens Food Group/Hatfield, Brenntag, and Giant Food Stores. Topics have included how to increase online sales and how to increase sales to a specific market. Recent competitions have been held virtually due to COVID-19 but we look forward to hosting our next competition in person at the DeSales University campus in Center Valley, PA.
