A team from Chippewa Valley Technical College Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) student organization recently came home with first place in a game competition, topping a team from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Carissa Hogan, Lindsey Matysik and Katherine Lane attended the Wisconsin SHRM Student Conference and Human Resources Games competition in Madison March 7-8. Twenty-two teams, most from four-year universities with others from technical colleges throughout the state, competed in the state jeopardy-style human resource games, which is a knowledge-based competition.

With an outstanding performance in the first rounds, the CVTC team claimed a number one seed and advanced to the semi-final round. The CVTC team then outscored a nearby technical college team and advanced to the final round, where they defeated the University of Wisconsin-Madison team to claim first place.

The students earned $400 for the CVTC SHRM club. Human Resources Instructor Tanya Hubanks is the advisor for the club.
