After winning the EY Award for the best NEOMA BS student society project on 28 April, the student society ENACTUS Reims has also won the people’s choice award at the inter-school final, with its new project, Clean Water.
EY encourages student societies, notably by organising the best student society project awards every year in each school, and then an inter-school final. NEOMA BS takes part each year, along with HEC, ESSEC, ESCP Europe, EDHEC, Audencia, EM Lyon, Sciences Po Paris, GEM, Dauphine and other engineering schools (Télécom ParisTech, AgroParisTech, Supélec, SupOptique, Centrale Paris, Centrale Lille, Mines de St Etienne, Mines de Nancy, ENSTA and ESTP).
The people’s choice award, won by ENACTUS Reims at the inter-school final on 24 May, is awarded after a vote by all the student societies from the other schools present.
"The aim of Clean Water is to create a filter to provide drinking water for people in Sri Lanka, who suffer from kidney failure caused by drinking water contaminated by heavy metals,” explains Maureen Caumes-Rossetti, who leads the Enactus Reims Clean Water project.
We wish the project every success. This year its plans include a feasibility study, to be conducted during a visit to Sri Lanka in August, and the development of a prototype with partner engineering schools.
