Students sought for contest to find bipartisan fiscal solutions

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Penn State Net Impact Undergraduate Chapter and PSU Votes are seeking students interested in entering a national competition to create a campaign to educate students on long-term federal debt, how it could affect their economic opportunities and what their generation can do to have a voice in promoting bipartisan solutions.

Net Impact, along with the Clinton Global Initiative University and the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, is sponsoring a campaign called Up to Us, which gives students the opportunity to come up with solutions for America’s long-term fiscal and economic challenges. 

The winning team will receive a $10,000 cash prize and there are additional cash prizes for runners-up.

Net Impact is a leading nonprofit that supports and generates new generations to use their careers to drive and innovate change in the world. About 40,000 student and professional leaders from more than 300 volunteer-led chapters across the world are carrying a mission for a sustainable future. PSU Votes is a University-wide initiative that works to enhance voter engagement, and is composed of students, faculty and staff members.
