The C. K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS) in the Upper East Region has won the Annual Enactus National Competition for the third time after defeating 11 universities at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The defeated universities include Takoradi Technical University, University of Ghana, University of Energy and Natural Resources, University of Mines and Technology, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, UDS-Tamale, Central University, Koforidua Technical University, Sunyani Technical University, Catholic University, and Kumasi Technical University.

The Enactus competition is an annual event that focuses on celebrating student impact and learning for Sustainable Development Goals’ actions. Each year, Enactus provides platforms for countries to host national competitions where student teams showcase the impact of their innovative works and are evaluated by business leaders. As a result, they advance to the Enactus World Cup to compete, celebrate, and continue their learning at the international level.

The seventeenth member team of Enactus CKT-UTAS won the national championship with projects called ‘Waste-Tek’ and ‘Eco Husk.’ Project Waste-Tek is an initiative that aims to convert e-waste, such as spoilt fridges, which are mostly burnt and contribute to the emission of carbon dioxide, into poultry incubators. Meanwhile, Eco Husk converts residual by-products of rice cultivation, such as rice husks and straw, into plywood and charcoal, respectively.

After a successful presentation of their audit, the team will represent the country in the Netherlands for the Enactus World Cup in October 2023.

According to the rules of the competition, the success of the audit will determine whether the team has the potential to advance to the next challenge at the international level.

The Vice-Chancellor, on behalf of the management, has pledged unwavering support for the team’s journey to global recognition in the Netherlands, pending a successful audit of their projects.

Meanwhile, the University of Energy and Natural Resources emerged as the first runner-up, while the University for Development Studies – Tamale and Koforidua Technical University were placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
