The White House Office of Public Engagement and mtvU are proud to announce the first ever Campus “Champions of Change” Challenge. The Challenge invites college and university students from across the country to demonstrate how their student led project is improving their campus community and helping America win the future.
Here’s how it works:
- Submit an online application detailing your student-led program at WhiteHouse.gov/CampusChallenge
- The White House will select 15 finalists based on input from a panel of judges
- The public will then have an opportunity to weigh in and vote on the top five projects they think best embody the President’s goal to win the future.
The top five finalists will be named Campus Champions of Change, and will be invited to theWhite House for a culminating event. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to work with mtvU, and MTV Act to create short features about their projects that will air on mtvU and be featured on MTV.com. The winning team will also host an episode of mtvU’s signature program, “The Dean’s List”
Today’s students are not just winning the future, but creating effective change in the present. As the President has said: “All Across America, college and university students are helping our country out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world. I hope this challenge shines a light on their efforts, and inspires Americans of all ages to get involved in their communities.”
