Lambton College is the national Enactus Champion for the second year in a row.
The college competed against 68 other colleges and universities from across the country to take top spot in the three-day student entrepreneurial event in Vancouver recently.
The back-to-back national titles earned the Lambton team a return ticket to the Enactus World Exposition, which they also won last year.
The local students are building a food production and wholesaling business across three communities in Zambia, Africa, and training 175 Zambian trainers this year to empower over 35,000 farmers. As a result, farm yields are 4.6 times greater than traditional yields.
“To watch them win a national championship for the second year in a row is a truly exceptional experience,” said college president and CEO Judith Morris.
As Canada’s representative, Lambton will head to San Jose, California in September to compete against 36 other countries in the World Cup.
