Please use this template as a guide for creating your annual report and presentation, but make them specific and unique to your team. Remember, the following template is simply a suggestion.

I. Institution and Community Demographics
A. Describe the demographics of your community and any unique facts. You want the judges to understand where you are from and the setting of your community.
B. Describe your college or university and mention any unique facts. You want the judges to understand your environment and situation.

II. Team History

IV. Description of Projects

A. Educational Topic Addressed - Explain which of the six SIFE educational topics the project directly addresses (market economics, success skills, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, environmental sustainability, or business ethics).
B. Project Need - State why the participant needs this knowledge to be successful. Good SIFE projects address a definable need. Describe the need fulfilled by the project.
C. Project Description - Simply describe your target audience, the educational topic addressed and the method used to educate.
D. Measurement of Results - Answer the question, “Was this project successful?” and prove it.

There are four measurement tools to use:
1. Outputs - This type of measurement might include the number of classes taught, counseling sessions conducted, educational materials distributed and participants served.
2. Outcomes - This type of measurement might include the number of participants that received jobs or number of participants that created a household budget.
3. Qualitative - This type of measurement might include items such as interviews or testimonials from team members, Business Advisory Board Members or other community partners involved with a project.
4. Quantitative - This type of measurement might include such items as pre- and post-exams or a measurement of the project participants’ success at meeting a specific objective.
E. Future Plans for Current Projects - Discuss your plans to sustain and improve your current projects.

B. Final Remarks - Describe your team’s long term goals for creating economic opportunity for others. The judges will see several annual reports and presentations during a SIFE competition - make sure they remember yours.

Words of Advice:

• Keep the annual report and presentation simple and concise. Four pages and 24 minutes do not provide adequate space and time to explain every detail of your educational program.
Provide a broad overview of your accomplishments and highlight the projects you feel had the most relevant impact.
• The annual report and presentation should be visual. Use of pictures, graphs and charts is recommended.
• Be creative in your approach.
• The annual report and presentation are, in essence, your team’s attempt to sell the judges the idea that your team did the best job of creating economic impact through educating others
about the six SIFE educational topics. If great products sold themselves, we would not have salespeople. Sell your team!
• There are a variety of tools available to you on the SIFE website. These include past annual reports, the SIFE Judge Orientation Video, press release templates, past Individual Topic and Special Competition reports and more. Be sure to take advantage of these resources!

Presentation Room Equipment Provided:

• One eight foot or larger screen
• One extension cord
• SIFE does not provide other equipment of any kind, such as computers, slide projectors, monitors, TVs, VCRs, carts, tables, etc. It is the sole responsibility of each team to secure the use of any other equipment
