SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, September 19, 2019 – It was a week of competition, collaboration, and celebration for Enactus Lambton at this year’s Enactus World Exposition.

Representing Team Canada for the second year in a row, the defending World Cup champions competed with 32 other international college and university teams before facing off against Germany, Egypt, and the U.S.A. in the final round of live competition.

While the Enactus Lambton team wowed the judges, and the audience, with the continued growth of their One Seed Project, the final decision saw the World Cup awarded to the team from Egypt, with Lambton claiming the second spot.

The three-day event, which took place in San Jose, California this week, welcomed more than 3,400 delegates including the world’s brightest university and college students, academic professionals, and business leaders as they showcased their global outreach projects and business ventures.

Once again, the Enactus Lambton team captivated audiences while highlighting the staggering growth of their One Seed Project, which has transformed the lives of 35,738 Zambians in the past year alone.

This year, the transformative work of Enactus Lambton has changed the lives of 285,904 people, creating a middle class in rural Zambia by providing financial and food security.

“I remain extremely proud of the dedication and leadership shown by students and faculty advisors involved with Enactus Lambton,” says Judith Morris, President & CEO, Lambton College. “These young leaders are driven by the desire to create a sustainable, positive impact in communities around the globe. To witness the celebration of diversity, the support for their fellow competitors, and the synergy of ideas in action is an honour in itself. I look forward to watching as One Seed, and all of the amazing projects presented this week continue to have a positive impact on the communities they serve.”
