HACKiversity Prize-a-Palooza!

Overview

Are you a stu­dent with no idea where to attend col­lege or what to major in? Are you a par­ent who has no idea how to advise your kid? Stop guess­ing at what makes for a great col­lege expe­ri­ence. Get out from behind the desk and start hav­ing expe­ri­ences to dis­cov­er your pas­sion, strengths, and inter­ests. Then design a cus­tomized col­lege career that fits YOU, minus the guess work.

*Note: 100% of the pro­ceeds gen­er­at­ed from HACK­iver­si­ty book sales dur­ing the sweep­stakes peri­od will be donat­ed to HOWMs, a non-prof­it financ­ing the build­ing of hous­es for the world’s poor­est liv­ing in Africa.

First Prize — Africa Expedition

Win a FREE trip to Malawi, Africa to hang out with Gret Gly­er, founder of HOWMs (non-prof­it pro­vid­ing afford­able hous­ing), founder of DonorSee (pover­ty alle­vi­a­tion fundrais­ing app), and vision­ary of Girls Shine Acad­e­my (all-girls school in Malawi). Go behind-the-scenes and learn first­hand what life is like abroad, what it takes to work in the field, and so much more. Gret has accom­plished at the age of 26 what few peo­ple do in a life­time and is a great resource for stu­dents want­i­ng to pur­sue a vari­ety of col­lege path­ways. Don’t miss this oppor­tu­ni­ty!
