Outdoor Program at Princeton Benefits From Polartec College Challenge

on . Posted in Award

The Outdoor Action Program at Princeton University is the winner of the second annual Polartec Made Possible College Challenge. As the winning collegiate outdoor program, the Outdoor Action Program will receive a $10,000 grant and Polartec apparel.

Polartec received video submissions from collegiate outdoor clubs around the country explaining what they would do with the $10,000. After the final four submissions were narrowed down, the public voted for a winner. The Outdoor Action Program won by a narrow margin just 166 votes, out of 27,000 votes cast overall.

The contest helped create buzz for Polartec as students implored friends and family to help vote for their college. Now, Polartec looks forward to seeing what the program does with the grant money and excitement generated on campus.
