Laker Effect Challenge

In light of the ever-increasing precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Spring 2020 Laker Effect Challenge is cancelled.

The Laker Effect Challenge builds on the idea of collective impact of the GVSU community on individual students, West Michigan, our state, and beyond. GVSU 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.

Submissions should be from individuals or groups at GVSU working in collaboration with a community partner. Projects should be aimed at solving a real problem, and demonstrate leadership and advocacy aimed at shaping the future. The projects with the top votes will be invited to present their idea in five minutes for a chance to win up to $3,000 from a pool of $5,000Judges will determine how the $5,000 prize will be split among winners.
