ST. LOUIS, April 17, 2015 - $10,000 in prize money goes to the student team from Brigham Young University-Hawaii that was named the 2015 Enactus United States National Champion Thursday night at the Enactus United States National Expo at America's Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
The BYU–Hawaii team will represent the United States alongside 35 other countries at the 2015 Enactus World Cup October 14-16 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
BYU–Hawaii’s Enactus team created projects empowering residents of the Ivory Coast, the home country of Sery Kone, one of its members. The team inspired women to become entrepreneurs through micro-financing and taught cacao farmers to pollinate crops through beekeeping to increase their production and income.
