Enactus Guelph was awarded Impact Awards for both their presentations in the TD Entrepreneurship Challenge* and the Scotiabank EcoLiving Green Challenge* at this year’s Enactus Regional Competition.

Each challenge category included 22 to 25 post-secondary institutions in Central Canada presenting on their project ideas that create impact and are ultimately aimed to improve the quality of life of others in the community. Across both categories, the Enactus Guelph presenting team (Sophie Lemay, Jacqui Scaman, Rose Duncan, and Zachary Brittain) was recognized for their ideas in leveraging entrepreneurship and preserving our environment.

Pitching their ideas to a panel of 20 judges in industry, the team rose from the youngest competing, to one of the most recognized post-secondary institutions in central Canada.

Enactus Guelph will be competing at Enactus National competition in May, 2016.
