MTU Track and Field/Cross Country Student Athletes Place 2nd in Consumer Products Day Contest

HOUGHTON, Mich. – Five members of the Michigan Tech Track and Field/Cross Country teams recently placed 2nd in the Consumer Products Day Contest sponsored by the Michigan Tech Career Services department.

Sophia Farquhar, Quinn Kaspriak, Keith Lemely, Josh Rzeppa, and Cory Zeutzius took home the second place prize of $2,400 courtesy of The Dow Chemical Company. The contest is setup in a "Shark-Tank style" where the team of students worked to come up with a re-purposed, re-designed idea for company supplied products which were then presented to company representatives ("Sharks").

Points in the contest were awarded to each team for innovation, functionality, sustainability, slogan, marketing for target audience, societal impact and a technical report. The annual contest took place January 26-28 on the Michigan Tech campus.
