Are you part of a student-run initiative that's working to maximize impact for a cause, issue or communities you care about, through volunteering, fundraising, and/or awareness efforts? Do you have an idea to Do Good on campus, in your community, or globally?
Register today and join more than 1,000 students across campus who are doing good on and off campus to compete for the chance win prize money and get your organization’s name in front of a panel of high-profile judges and hundreds of supporters and professionals.
Registration will open November 30, 2017. Stay tuned for more!
Once you register, be sure to take advantage of the opportunities the Challenge offers, including the Mini Grant [link], coaching and mentoring, and so much more. And, be sure to keep track of your progress and impact made before final reports are due on April 1, 2018 at midnight.
As you prepare your final report, keep in mind that projects and ventures are judged on the following areas exhibited during the Challenge:
- Impact: Both depth and breadth of impact in terms of money raised, volunteer hours worked, number of people reached or impacted, and more.
- Leverage: How did you use the Challenge to accelerate your impact?
- Creativity: Does the project/venture address a social issue in a unique and innovative way?
- Feasibility: Consider the goals of your project/venture and whether they are realistic and achievable. Can you demonstrate past success? Do you have a strong understanding of how outside forces may impact your work and if so, do you have a plan for dealing with potential hurdles?
