The 2014 Ford College Community Challenge Winners: “Building Sustainable Communities”
The Ford College Community Challenge is designed to empower student-led projects at higher education organizations to catalyze community-building projects that address pressing local needs around the theme “Building Sustainable Communities.” Participants are urged to think broadly and explore a variety of potential topics including infrastructure and workforce needs, education pipeline issues, design issues, new approaches to student volunteerism, etc.
Students submitted a proposal for a student-led, community-building project for a opportunity to win a $25,000 grant. Ford Motor Company Fund choose 10 outstanding proposals and these winning schools or student organizations will receive a $25,000 grant to implement their projects.
