It was wonderful to have a variety of companies who offer different services within the print industry. This gave students an opportunity to see the different facets of the industry and learn about different opportunities. All of our representatives were excited to have meaningful conversations about their companies, what they do and what they are looking for in future employees.

Both member representatives and students enjoyed engaging conversations about the future of the industry while competing to take home the FOREtheWIN trophy. With a score of 969 to 465, the students took home the prize!
