10.12.2010– Polartec®, the leading manufacturer of performance fabrics, launched the Made Possible College Challenge this week, a contest aimed at collegiate outdoor programs and clubs that will result in one school receiving $10,000 along with Polartec apparel to support its outdoor programming.
“We believe collegiate outdoor programs play an important role in fostering the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts,” states Polartec Global Director of Marketing, Nate Simmons. “These outdoor programs encourage students to get out and appreciate nature, teach valuable leadership skills and pass along the ethics of environmental stewardship.”
The Made Possible College Challenge, which launched on Oct. 1, encourages official collegiate outdoor programs to submit in writing or in video format, a basic proposal of how they would best spend $10,000. The submission deadline is November 1, at which time Polartec staff will chose finalists. Those finalists will be included in a public vote via an application on Polartec’s Facebook page through the month of November. The school with the most votes will win and be announced on Dec. 1.
