Why Not You? Why Not Now?

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 named at our annual Crystal Owl Gala and awarded $1,500! The top 3 finalists are awarded $1,000 and the top 10 is awarded $100.

The 2021 Student of the Year Competition is closed for entries but the 2022 competition opens in January!
