Every year, The Challenge Program, Inc. hosts a Student of the Year competition. To enter, students that attend a TCP partnered school can fill out a survey and explain how The Challenge Program, Inc. and their business partner has affected them and also answer the questions "Why Not Me? Why Not Now?" The Student of the Year is announced during our annual Crystal Owl Gala, receiving a $2,500 award. The 3 finalists will receive invitations to the Gala and are guaranteed to receive at least $1,000. Additionally, the remaining 7 out of our top 10 students will also receive $1,000."
