The St. Thomas Students in Free Enterprise team won its third consecutive regional championship this week at the SIFE USA Regional Competition in Chicago. The UST SIFE team has qualified for the national competition next month in Kansas City.
From the UST Bulletin:
Every year SIFE teams across the world create and implement a variety of business-related projects that help change the world. At the end of the year they get together to share their accomplishments and compete against one another for the title of regional, national and world champion.
On April 16, SIFE president Madeline Kapler, along with secretary Chantel Taylor, vice president of communications Kelly Boelter, and vice president Travis Atkinson represented the UST SIFE team in competition. After presenting six projects in front of a panel of judges from the business community, the team was awarded the title of regional champion for its league. With this win the team is invited to present again May 22 at the national competition in Kansas City.
