The first day of the 2011 ACE National Exposition was very exciting, and we are proud to announce that SIFE Memorial has been declared National Champions in the TD Entrepreneurship Challenge and SIFE Financial Education Challenge.
The SIFE Financial Education Challenge is a SIFE team based topic competition operated by ACE. The purpose of this national initiative is to encourage SIFE teams to develop projects that deliver relevant financial education to others in an effort to improve their ability to make informed financial decisions. SIFE Memorial’s team presented work delivered through our FYI, FLAGS, and Choices.
The TD SIFE Entrepreneurship Challenge is a SIFE team based topic competition operated by ACE and made possible with support from TD Bank Financial Group. The purpose of this national initiative is to encourage SIFE teams to assist aspiring entrepreneurs when considering entrepreneurship as a viable career option and to work directly with local businesses to help improve their operations, profitability, creation of jobs, and on a whole – build a stronger Canadian economy. SIFE Memorial’s team presented work through Based in Business, Launch Pad, Transcontinental Market Research, and Bright Futures.
During the ACE National Exposition, SIFE teams have the opportunity to compete in national topic competitions in the TD Entrepreneurship Challenge, SIFE Financial Education Challenge, and the Scotiabank & SIFE Go Green Challenge.
In order to qualify for these challenges, SIFE Memorial first competed in the ACE Atlantic Exposition in Halifax, this past March. At this event, SIFE Memorial made history, capturing all three regional titles and the opportunity to represent Atlantic Canada in all three national topic competitions on the national stage.
