The Honda Campus All-Star Challenge is a year-round program that includes campus engagement, tournaments and culminates with the National Championship held in California.
As a result, students expand their scope of knowledge; learn teamwork and sportsmanship, and develop a bond with their competitors. HCASC’s alumni group also supports students with networking and mentorship opportunities post-graduation.
Over its 29-year history, the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge has built a network of more than 125,000 HCASC alumni.
With an impressive roster of engineers, lawyers, doctors, and professors, the program provides students with access to leadership and professional networking opportunities.
“HCASC helped me learn the importance of teamwork,” said Alumni Hall of Fame honoree and North Carolina A&T State University alumnus, Matthew Barnhill. “I stay engaged with the HCASC program to give back to the HBCU community because it energizes me and keeps me in touch with the latest and greatest from our HBCUs. It’s amazing to see the next generation of civic and academic leaders grow and blossom.”
Teams from 48 HBCUs will compete for the championship title and a share of more than $350,000 in institutional grants from Honda in the 29th Annual HCASC National Championship Tournament. Tune into HCASC.com on April 10 at 12 p.m. EDT to watch the livestream of the academic competition.
