Columbia College members of the Students in Free Enterprise team brought home the first-runner-up trophy from the regional competition in St. Louis on April 7, according to a press release.

Students in Free Enterprise is a nonprofit organization active at more than 1,800 colleges and universities around the world.

It organizes programs and projects to teach entrepreneurship, economics, business ethics and personal finance skills to the community.

The organization competes in regional, national and international competitions each year based on these projects.

Steven Heller, a visiting professor of business administration, was the team’s adviser.

For the competition, the students put together an annual report of all the projects they had done throughout the 2004-05 academic year.

International business major and team member Lisa Kowalewski helped on a project involving students at Field Elementary School.

She and another member, Mindy Mitchem, helped the children create, stock and operate the school store, Tiger Supply Store.
