Four Jarvis Christian University students will compete in the National Qualifying Tournament of America’s premier academic competition for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) students.
The team of Jarvis students will attend the 35th Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC) on Saturday, February 10, at Prairie View A&M University in Prairie View, Texas, as one of 64 teams competing for institutional grants from Honda and could win a spot in the HCASC National Championship Tournament in Torrance California, on April 6-10, 2024.
Students will face off in head-to-head competition and must quickly answer questions about history, science, literature, religion, math, the arts, pop culture, and sports.
HCASC is a year-round program celebrating Black excellence and showcasing the academic talents of top HBCU students from across the country. HCASC challenges students to expand their scope of knowledge on a wide range of topics while also helping to develop their leadership and collaboration skills. With the opportunity to compete against students from other HBCUs, participants build camaraderie, network, and gain mentorship opportunities with HCASC alumni.
This year, Honda will provide more than $500,000 in institutional grants to participating HBCUs with many of the schools using the grants to fund student scholarships. More than 170,000 scholars have competed in HCASC since the academic tournament was established in 1989.
