More than 850 college students from 65 of the nation's top horticulture and landscape programs competed in this National Collegiate Landscape Competition, March 20−23, 2014, at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. This event is considered the largest collegiate competition event in the country.
Gravely sponsored the Truck and Trailer Competition. This competition allowed two people to practice their safe driving skills. It also gave them the opportunity to properly load and strap a Gravely mower onto a trailer. This was a practical experience for them and allowed them to work together as a team to perfect their skills.
Gravely also sponsored the Sales Event which gave students ten minutes to complete the sale of a landscape design project. It taught them many skills such as professionalism, how to overcome objections and how they could improve in the future. Everyone was very appreciative of the feedback given following the sale.
