Up to Us, an annual college campus campaign sponsored by the PGPF in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) and Net Impact, today announced the winner of its 2015 competition. The Stockton University team took first prize for its innovative campaign to educate and engage millennials on how to address America's long-term national debt.
This year’s Up to Us teams were evaluated by a panel of judges, including Congressman Joaquín Castro; Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation; the Honorable Mick Cornett, Mayor of Oklahoma City; Ben Rattray, founder and CEO of the online social change website Change.org; and George Stephanopoulos, anchor of ABC’s “This Week” and “Good Morning America."
In addition to the four-week competition, students across the country added their "two cents" by participating in My Two Cents Day, the first-ever national day of mobilization around fiscal issues.
