UTSA students claim top honors at HR Games

(April 7, 2004)--Three University of Texas at San Antonio students took home top honors earlier this spring at the 2004 Texas HR Games, sponsored by the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

Brenda Briones, Sarah Gonzales and Amanda Vela made up the winning team from UTSA, successfully answering tough questions to earn the chance to compete at regional competition where a win would send the group to national competition at the SHRM Annual Conference.

This year's state competition had six teams from five universities with teams from Texas A&M, North Texas and UTSA moving to the semifinal round, where UTSA topped North Texas for the championship.

The HR Games are used to motivate and prepare students for professional in human resources (PHR) certification. The games are made up of a one- or two-day series of game-show-style matches with questions divided into categories such as management practices, selection and recruitment, training and development, compensation and benefits, employee/labor relations, and health, safety and security.
