A team of students from the University of the Free State (UFS) recently walked away with the laurels when they won R100 000 in the national Creativity for Progress competition of Sanlam. In the competition students had to make plans to lure graduates and trained people who left the rural areas due to the economic situation back to those areas. Students first battled it out at department and faculty level before they faced other universities at national level. The UFS team came from three departments and designed a plan whereby the desolated railway stations in the rural areas could be converted into business centres that would breathe new life into those areas.
