SIFE Team is Regional Champ

 Viterbo business students who matched their educational outreach projects against those of 16 other college teams captured the Regional Championship award at the 2001 Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) Regional Exposition and Career Opportunity Fair held April 12 in Minneapolis.

SIFE encourages students to take what they are learning in the classroom and apply it to real-life situations and to use their knowledge to better their communities through educational outreach. The projects presented by the Viterbo SIFE team included Junior Achievement, Teach a Child about Business, School of Business Career Fair, and the Book Exchange. Teams were judged on the effectiveness of their projects during a
24-minute presentation and were evaluated on creativity and innovation, demonstrated results, success in utilizing resources, and documentation of activities.

Business professor John Nebeck serves as the Viterbo SIFE advisor. Last year, he was named a Sam M. Walton Free Enterprise Fellow in recognition of his leadership and support of the Viterbo SIFE program.
