The Club Competition is a great opportunity for all University recognized clubs and organizations to promote themselves to their fellow students and win funding while doing so. Any recognized club or org with a good standing Agency Account with Associated Students is allowed to participate to win not only money but also present themselves to the student body and gain popularity amongst students. The club or org with the most votes at the end of the voting period will receive a first place prize of $800. This is an amazing opportunity for clubs to not only win funding but also win over potential new members to their organization.
