The UAS SIFE team (Students in Free Enterprise) competed on March 31st at the SIFE Honolulu Regional Competition. The UAS SIFE students posted their best finish to date, earning a 3rd place award behind two strong and well established teams from Brigham Young University Hawaii (1st place) and Hawaii Pacific University (2nd place). BYU Hawaii advances again this year to the SIFE National Championship which will be held in Chicago. Top national teams from around the globe will compete this fall at the SIFE World Championships in Singapore. The UAS SIFE team is now finishing it's second year of competition.

Graduating senior Elizabeth Stickel led a team that also included Sabrina Javier, Ricardo Garcia and Toby Harbanuk. All students are part of the UAS School of Management's Online BBA program.

All four students did an excellent job presenting their portfolio of Alaska community outreach projects to eight judges from companies like Wells Fargo, Sam's Club, and Enterprise.
