A little more than a month after being crowned as one of the Midwest regional champions, the PSU Enactus team shined on the main stage at the national competition in Kansas City.
Along with being named the overall second runner-up, the PSU team also earned two impressive accolades.
During the opening ceremonies, the PSU team was recognized as the second-place winner in the Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership contest and as the third-place winner in the Sam’s Club “Step Up For Small Business” competition.
The PSU team received the Women’s Economic Empowerment award for its community employment initiative. The second-place award included a $4,000 prize.
The team earned third-place in the “Step Up” competition for its work with the Grace House Event Center in Galena. That award carried a $3,000 prize. All told, they left Kansas City with $7,750 in grant money.
