Once again it was time for Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) Okanagan to proudly present Western Canada with the unique and impactful projects we have been putting forth our efforts towards over the past year.
It was our chance to display to the rest of our fellow regional Canadian SIFE teams, from Vancouver to Manitoba, why SIFE Okanagan is the most dynamic, sustainable, environmentally focused, and entrepreneurial SIFE team.
After attending the Western Canadian Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship (ACE) Regional Exposition, SIFE Okanagan is proud to announce we have once again been successful in our endeavors.
Three teams, competing in three different categories, presented animated exhibits using pictures, video, music, and compelling speech to almost twenty ACE judges who are prominent Canadian business leaders. In the end, SIFE Okanagan took home the title of Regional Champion in Financial Education, Regional Champion in the Green Challenge, and first runner up in the category of Entrepreneurship.
Having attended my first ever-ACE exposition I can truly say how dedicated this organization is to advancing the knowledge, skills and abilities of business students. I have never been so excited and proud of my fellow student colleagues and so very grateful to have the opportunity to be part of such a fascinating organization that proudly represents the Okanagan College School of Business.
It is the knowledge and passion for business instilled in us by our educational institution, Okanagan College, and the training and guidance from our dedicated professors, that we can thank for making us into the unique and well rounded business people we are today.
It was truly inspiring to personally witness the projects and commitments of all the other post secondary students from across Western Canada and to see the team and college spirit held by all. SIFE teams across Canada are having a positive effect on the lives of thousands of Canadians everyday.
I want to on behalf of every member of SIFE Okanagan thank all of our sponsors, supporters, professors and fans and to congratulate you on helping us to achieve our enduring quest to create, advance, and inspire positive economic, social and environmental impact in the Okanagan Valley.SIFE: The 2010 Regional ACE Exposition
