Prove It!: Calling Campus Change Agents (App. Due 2/7)

Ganesh Mysore, ’15, Chemical Engineering and Political Science, and Valerie Parks, ’15, Financial Economics, are coordinating the Student Government Association’s 2013-2014 Prove It! competition.

Ganesh MysoreSince 2007, the UMBC Student Government Association has invited students to take ownership of their campus community with Prove It! Whether it is by constructing a plaza for students to study and relax, extending operating hours at our favorite library cafe, or installing more examples of student-created art on campus, Prove It! has embodied UMBC’s culture of empowering students to bring about the changes they want to see.

Valerie ParksThis year’s Prove It! competition offers up to $10,000 to two groups of undergraduate students with amazing ideas to make UMBC a better place for every member of our community. The deadline for applications this year is Friday, February 7th. Submitting an application involves working with your team of students to develop the idea you want to bring to reality next year. If you have questions, or just want to talk about an idea, please do not hesitate to send us an email (see below)!
