The Enactus Saint Mary’s team is going to need a bigger trophy shelf.
At the Enactus Atlantic Regional Competition at the Halifax Convention Centre (March 15 & 16), students teams gathered to showcase how their community outreach projects and business ventures are making a real impact in Canada and beyond.
Enactus Saint Mary’s prepared 5-minute pitches on their initiatives in four areas: financial literacy, youth empowerment, environmental, and entrepreneurship — all of which must “empower people in economically, socially and environmentally sustainable ways”.
The team won Regional Champion in three topic challenges:
CWB Financial Education - for best initiative on financial education and/or inclusion
Scotiabank Environmental - awarded to the team that team most effectively used environmental programming
TD Entrepreneurship - for best use entrepreneurship programming
Enactus Saint Mary’s will move on to the final rounds of competition held at the Enactus Canada National Exposition, taking place in Vancouver in May 2019.
