Myself and a group of us college students are competing the GOMC. We just got our pre campaign strategy approved a little while ago and we also received our competition account information as well (id, login, password, etc.). Now we are trying to find out how we need to actually go into the account and start putting in our adwords that we want and at what price. Any ideas??
