Despite having to change hotel rooms at 2 a.m. because their toilet backed up and flooded, a group of Seneca College students went on to win first prize — again — at the Great Canadian HR-Business Student Conference Case Study Competition in Toronto, co-sponsored by Canadian HR Reporter.

Alexandria Coleman, Rachael Iles, Natalie Pedrosa, Lennex Szeto and their coach Tracy Porter were the winners of both the judged competition and the audience-selected people’s choice award. They each received $500 and a $500 bursary was given to their school.

The winning Seneca team was very impressive, said Bob Delaney, president of Earning Through Learning in Aurora, Ont., and host of the conference.
