National Competition

The College of the Ozarks Students in Free Enterprise Team is now one of the top 40 teams in the United States. COSIFE presented their annual report in the SIFE National Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, in May. A total of 140 colleges and universities were organized into 24 leagues for competition. From these 24 leagues, the top 20 teams, the top four teams, and the SIFE USA National Champion was chosen.

“The next generation of great leaders is going to come out of this room,” Mark Singleton, Vice President of Sales Rudolph Foods Corporation said. “If you can’t get fired up with these projects, you just can’t get fired up at all.”

Diversity was a key competitive edge in COSIFE’s presentation. From elementary students to high school students and small business owners to global business owners, COSIFE demonstrated their commitment to creating, implementing, and continuing innovative free enterprise education projects that benefit people around the world.

SIFE is an international non-profit organization active on more than 1,400 university campuses in 48 countries. SIFE teams create economic opportunities in their communities by organizing outreach projects that focus on: market economics, entrepreneurship, personal finance, success skills, and business ethics.
