The Honda Campus All-Star Challenge
When you study together and compete together, you can’t help but make friends. And that’s exactly what Honda had in mind when creating the Honda Campus All Star Challenge (HCASC). Founded in 1989 and solely funded by American Honda, the HCASC brings teams together from the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) for a meeting of the minds. Students battle over their knowledge of subjects ranging from African-American history to science to pop culture. The winning team takes home a $50,000 grant, and Honda annually awards all participating schools over $300,000 combined.
Since the inception of the program, more than 100,000 students have participated, and Honda has awarded more than $7 million in grants to HBCUs. Many students have formed lasting relationships with peers and coaches, and gone on to successful careers in a range of industries—further proof that the best friendships can lead to more than memories.
Fisk University of Nashville earned the title of National Champion during the 2014 tournament, held April 12 – 16 on the campus of American Honda in Torrance, CA. Congratulations to the Bulldogs!
