SIFE Brandon Team Heads to Calgary to Compete in Ace Nationals Exposition

May 1, 2012

Brandon, MB — On May 6, 2012, members of SIFE Brandon will travel to Calgary, Alberta to compete in the annual Ace Nationals Exposition. The event will be held at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre from May 7 to 9, where teams from across Canada present the results of their projects throughout the academic year.

Through multiple rounds of live presentations-based competitions, SIFE teams showcase how their community outreach projects are shaping the economic, social and environmental landscape of Canada. Business leaders serve as the panel of judges who will evaluate each team’s projects and determine which team was most successful at improving the quality of life and standard of living for those in their community and name that team the SIFE National Champion.

The National Champion will then move on to represent Canada at the prestigious SIFE World Cup, held in Washington, DC in October. The SIFE Brandon team has been working very hard on their presentation over the past few months and thanks in advance the community for their support.
