After presenting a report on the team s year-long community outreach projects to a panel of business leaders in Bellevue, WA, the Montana State University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) Team was named a SIFE USA Rookie of the Year.

During the academic year, the MSU SIFE Team participated in three team projects in the Bozeman community, including Project Camelina, a partnership between The Center for Entrepreneurship for the New West, TechRanch of Bozeman, and SIFE team member, Cassie Dallas. The project educated scientists, food producers, and state officials about the economic potential of Camelina, a nutritionally beneficial food source.

Jeremy Bolhuis, Dwayne Knudson and Cassie Dallas presented this and two other projects to a panel of 21 SIFE corporate sponsors, many from Fortune 500 companies. "It was a great privilege to present to some of our nation's top business leaders," said Bohulis
