This is not just a campus marketing competition!
Since 2015, Wanglaoji has been inviting college and university students across the country to participate in its campus marketing competition. Over the past five years, a multi-level and diversified campus marketing ecology has been established to upgrade the competition in terms of coverage, mentor selection, cooperative units and other enabling factors. The following efforts have been made:
1. The regional competition has been upgraded to a national one that covers North China, East China, South China, Central China and West China, and the number of participating colleges and universities and student teams has been increasing year by year. So far, more than 1,500 teams have participated.
2. The competition has evolved from a single marketing competition to a comprehensive competition that involves pre-competition publicity, on-the-spot investigation, financial support, practical employment, etc. to provide all-round professional guidance for college and university students.
3. The competition actively carries out cross-border cooperation to integrate the resources of enterprises, universities, media, associations, etc. including the National Research Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy, Innovation-Driven Research Institute, Southern Sports of Southern Newspaper Group, Cover News of Sichuan Daily Newspaper Group, International Institute of Business Administration of Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, Business School of Sichuan University, etc. Related teachers and experts in the above institutions have made valuable suggestions to and provided various resources for the participants to stimulate their passion for innovation and guide them to respond to the call of the state and actively participate in the "second classroom" activity to improve their practical ability.
A strong mentor team
Young people nowadays dare to try new things and challenge themselves. To be a good friend for them in their life and study, Wanglaoji has continuously explored and innovated, and chooses Liu Haoran, Zhou Dongyu, Zhang Yixing, and other new generation idols to be its endorsers, and works with Xishanju to customize “Game Can" to attract the attention of young people and establish more personalized, multi-level and closer emotional connections with them.

The Dream of Building A Powerful Nation for A Century-Old National Brand
Promoting the Strategy of Building a Powerful Nation through Talents
For a long time, to promote the development of China’s various undertakings and respond to the "strategy of building a powerful country through talents", Wanglaoji has joined forces with many major colleges and universities to create a new ecological environment in which products and consumption are connected, campus culture is promoted, and an innovative talent training mechanism is established based on Wanglaoji’s own advantageous resources and capabilities, in order to cultivate more outstanding talents in the new era to realize the “Chinese Dream”.
