I'm sure I'd get a similar response from most upper management types
about the idea of paying the "winner" $100,000 for a logo design.

The idea of working with students is that they're supposed to get more
out of the arrangement than you do. I doubt I'd be able to sell most
upper management types on that idea, either.

But it sometimes does help make really bad ideas go away.
