Rock Valley College Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team has been named one of eight United States National Finalist teams in the Sam's Club Environmental Sustainability Challenge Competition. The SIFE team will be competing in the final round at the Sam's Club headquarters on Thursday and Friday, April 21-22. The top three teams will be announced at the SIFE USA National Exposition in Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 10-12.
The challenge provided the opportunity for SIFE and Sam's Club associates to work together to effectively empower Sam's business members to raise their quality of life and standard of living through environmentally sustainable practices in their facilities, operations and community. The SIFE team served as strategically focused third party providers of guidance, leadership and innovation. Throughout the challenge, the team committed to a partnership with their local Sam's Club where they worked with a designated Sam's associate to complete projects addressing: waste and recycling; energy and water; and people and community.
