UIS Human Resources students win awards in statewide competition

On February 21, the University of Illinois Springfield Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Student Chapter competed at the Illinois State HR Games held at Illinois State University.

This was the fourth year participating, and the second year as an official student SHRM chapter. This year UIS took five students to compete: Hunter Westbrook, Trent Adams, William Osborne, Riley Quinlan, and Jordan Wood.

The students competed in a Jeopardy style game in which one of the two UIS teams made it to the semi-final round, competing against teams from Illinois State University, Northern Illinois University, and Western Illinois University. The two teams united into one group to compete in a case competition, in which the group achieved second place.
