Students Standout Awards

College student judges traverse the expo floor, posing questions about the products and services featured at the NGA Show. Exhibitors have the chance to demonstrate how their offerings make a significant impact on the grocery industry by simplifying tasks, fostering growth and creating efficiencies. After canvasing the options, students meet to discuss nominations across 5 categories. Eventually, they will present an award to the most deserving exhibitor on stage and include a quick pitch on why the exhibitor was selected.

This program allows college students networking opportunities with company leaders while also providing exhibitors a golden opportunity to have their products and services endorsed by an emerging customer base – Gen Z.
