Laker Effect Challenge

Laker Effect Challenge

Date and Time

Thursday, November 30, 2017 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Mary Idema Pew Library » Multipurpose Room


The Laker Effect Challenge builds on the idea of collective impact  of the GVSU community on individual students, faculty, staff, West Michigan, our state, and beyond. Lakers are driven by our passion for learning and using knowledge for the common good. We make a difference by focusing on others and making lasting contributions.

Any individual or group at GVSU working in collaboration with a community partner may submit a brief project proposal aimed at solving a real problem, and demonstrate leadership and advocacy aimed at shaping the future. Seven projects with the top votes will be invited to present their idea in five minutes, and all submitters will be invited to participate in a poster competition on Challenge day (November 30).  Presentation winners will split a financial award of $5,000. The winning poster will receive $500

Submissions are open now through October 31.  Voting starts October 15 and presentations are November 30.
