With six overall champion awards in seven years‚ women have been a strong presence in the competition since its inception‚ and this year’s overall champion award is once again up for grabs.

The NCSC is the only competition in existence that brings the top sales students in North America together with prominent figures of the business world to create exclusive networking opportunities for both students and sponsors.

“Sales has a great future for women. The profession itself has huge growth potential‚ which opens a ton of opportunities for women to enter the field‚” said Megan Walter‚ 2005 NCSC Product Category first place winner.

During the competition‚ 70 students from more than 35 universities showcase their sales skills in one−on−one sales presentation scenarios. Each role−play is broadcast live to corporate sponsors‚ who participate as judges and buyers throughout the competition.

Corporate sponsors have contributed more than half a million dollars to the event since 1999‚ and nearly 40 companies are expected to sponsor the 2006 NCSC.
