Campus Challenge

September 2012

Greetings!  I am so excited to remind you – or perhaps to let you know for the first time! – about an amazing opportunity for the youth in your church to use their God-given talents to earn scholarships for college!  This year’s Campus Challenge Competition at Houghton College will take place in just over a month.  We look forward to another year of enjoying the gifts that God has given to our young people through their performances and completed achievements!

Campus Challenge is a national arts competition sponsored by Wesleyan Higher Education and the Wesleyan Church to help students discover and develop their God-given talents to honor God in a life of service to Him. Participants compete in various categories of art, music, literature, speech and drama, either solo or with a group of students from the same Wesleyan church.  Any teen who regularly attends a Wesleyan church or youth group and is between the ages of 12 and 19 (on the date of competition) is eligible to enter! 

Scholarships earned through Campus Challenge can be used at any of the five Wesleyan colleges:
Houghton College                                 Houghton, NY
Indiana Wesleyan University                 Marion, IN
Bethany Bible College                          Sussex, New Brunswick
Oklahoma Wesleyan University             Bartlesville, OK
Southern Wesleyan University              Central, SC   

We encourage you to help us get the word out and invite any and all teens in your church to come and compete!  It is our desire to help our Wesleyan teens to identify and develop their God-given gifts and talents, encourage them to utilize them in His service, and to reward their work with scholarships for college. 

The Houghton College Campus Challenge Competition will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2012.  Please see the enclosed registration forms and feel free to make as many copies as you need!  Registration fees are as follows:
