Local student participates in national marketing competition

The University of Minnesota's student chapter of the National Agri-Marketing Association participated in a national marketing competition in Kansas City, Mo.

Among the 10 members who participated in the competition this past April was Kirby Schmidt of Marshall. Schmidt and his team were involved in NAMA's 2011 project to market iFS, an iPad applications development and training unit of a major agricultural cooperative.

The team spent the last several months conducting marketing research, writing a marketing plan and developing a final presentation.

In developing a marketing plan, Schmidt and his team followed the same practices and principles used by today's marketing professionals. They had to submit a written plan summary prior to the competition and make a formal presentation to a panel of judges that consisted of marketing and agribusiness professionals.

Overall, 30 NAMA student chapters participated in the marketing competition which is part of the National Agri-Marketing Association's annual conference and trade show. More than 300 student members attended the conference. The University of Minnesota's team placed in the top third of all student chapters.

Schmidt is a 2009 graduate of Marshall High and is majoring in animal science at the University of Minnesota.
