Student Challenge Kickoff

The Promise Student Challenge kicked off for the 2019-2020 school year on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, at SMU. With eight weeks to plan, the seven teams participating will have an opportunity to design solutions to challenges identified by students as they navigate high school and prepare for postsecondary options. 

Teams are strongly encouraged to watch student presentations from last year for additional information and inspiration.
