Chinhoyi — THE Chinhoyi University of Technology this year won the Boost-Sife competition for outstanding community projects by university students.

The competition fosters entrepreneurship and the spirit of helping communities develop through imparting life skills.

CUT will now represent Zimbabwe in Los Angeles, the United States, at an international competition pitting them against universities and institutions of higher learning from about 60 countries.

The university beat 10 other local institutions to win the coveted trophy and a ticket to represent Zimbabwe on the international arena.

Speaking at a reception for the winning team, CUT Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr Pardon Kuipa said excellence did not end with academic achievement but should be complemented by community involvement.

CUT’s winning formula was pinned on three projects in Wedza, Kariba and Chinhoyi where they conducted workshops with artists and distributed models on financial intelligence, market economics and entrepreneurship.

This saw the improvement of artists’ revenue streams after they embraced modern marketing systems and bookkeeping techniques.

Boost stands for Building Opportunities on Student Talent and aims to equip university students with skills to become future community and national leaders.

Sife is an international organisation running under the Boost Fellowship and stands for Students in Free Enterprise.

Dr Kuipa said the competition helped mould complete students who would be able to contribute meaningfully to national development.

Project co-ordinator Mr Chenjerai Muchenje said a lot was put into their preparations for the competition to shrug off the challenge of last year’s winner, Africa University.
