Their most recent Annual Report shows how they empowered over 2,000 people in need from Nebraska by applying their academic skills with an entrepreneurial approach. Over 400 universities/colleges have active Enactus teams, and our student-led projects were rated as one of the Top 60 in the nation by experienced business professionals at the recent National Expo composition in Cincinnati, OH. This was the first time in our school history that our Enactus/SIFE team has earned the National Quarter Finalist Runner Up trophy and $1,750 in total prize money. 17 students participated at National Competition, but the UNK Enactus programs has over 25 active members.
