From November 1st through January 8th, Campus Causes invited college dance marathon participants from across the U.S. to submit short videos explaining why they’re passionate about raising awareness and funds “For The Kids”. With $10,000 in donations up for grabs, 28 groups heeded the call and entered The Campus Causes “Why I Dance” contest. After more than 30,000 votes were cast, 6 finalists rose to the top, hoping to clench the $5,000 Grand Prize donation, while five runner-ups would receive a $1,000 donation — all for their children’s hospital beneficiaries.
Based on voting by a panel of esteemed students, we’re honored to announce our Grand Prize Winner… StateDM of Misissippi State, benefiting the Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital!
We extend our heartfelt congrats to all our winners and “Why I Dance” contest participants. We are thankful this contest helped amplify your voices and are humbled to support the great work each of you are doing on your campuses and in your communities. Stay tuned to our social media channels for future contests and giveaways!
