The Do Good Challenge is open to all University of Maryland undergraduate and graduate students.
Each team must have 50% or more UMD students as members.
Previous first place winners may not compete for the same cause; however, they may compete in a new team for a different cause.
During the Challenge
All teams must keep detailed records of their accomplishments throughout the Challenge. Information may include:
- Total funds raised
- Number of volunteers involved
- Number of people helped
- Activities conducted
After the Challenge
Teams will be evaluated by a panel of Do Good Challenge staff to determine twelve semi-finalists.
Each semi-finalist will be asked to present in front of this panel. Teams must:
- Prepare a 5-minute presentation.
- Go through a 5-minute questions round.
- Demonstrate the impact, leverage, and innovation of their project or venture.
Following team presentations, the panel will determine six finalists. Each finalist will be asked to present in front of a panel of celebrity judges and an audience of hundreds at the Finals in late spring.
