Polartec has launched their second annual Made Possible Challenge, which will award a single college with $10,000 cash and some great Polartec gear. The company hopes to encourage a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts through its support of collegiate outdoor programs and clubs.
Last year’s winner was Appalachian State, which received 28,000 online votes in just a single week. The school used their $10,000 to create a scholarship fund that is helping to fund outdoor adventures for a number of students.
If you’d like to see your school considered for the 2011 edition of the Made Possible Challenge, simply go to this website and fill out the form, and submit either a document or short video explaining what your college would do with the money were you to be awarded the grant. Entries will be accepted until November 30th, at which time Polartec will select four finalists who will be announced on the company’s Facebook page. After that, the public will weigh in, voting for the school that they feel is the most deserving.
The ultimate winner will be announced on February 1, 2012.
