The team’s Junior SIFE project was also selected as a finalist in the individual topic competition and is now one of 20 projects in the market economics category advancing to the national competition.

The 40 colleges and universities that competed in the regional competition were divided into nine leagues. Union competed against Taylor University, Oakland University, Lakeland College and Wheaton College in its league.
