BEST PRACTICE: Watch the video at 1.5x speed. This is the best speed for focussing on the lessons from the video


Up to 64 students will earn a spot for the Championship round and compete LIVE on WMU's Campus on Friday, February 10, 2023.

The PROMPT is exactly the same: why are you worthy of an interview for a customer-facing position at Crystal Mountain Resort. 

  • Round #1: all 64 students compete and the top 16 move on!

  • Sweet Sixteen: Four groups of four students will compete with the winner of each group moving on to the Championship

  • Championship: you will deliver once to a set of judges. Four championship round people will get ranked by judges for final places
