Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
YouMeThink.com™, a new global content exchange service, today announced its first “College Greek and Student Club Challenge.” The contest challenges student clubs and Greek organizations to compete for a $1000.00 prize to be used for their club needs, or to donate to the charity organization or community initiative of their choice. Winners are determined by the largest amount of quality research, academic, and creative content uploaded to the YouMeThink.com site.
The first 2013 College Challenge has begun at Rutgers University, Arizona State University, and the University of Michigan-Flint, with expansion to International and other U.S. campuses slated in the fall 2013. Student organizations have been sent invitations containing the contest rules.
The 2013 College Challenge fits into YouMeThink.com’s unique business vision of creating a service by which students, teachers, professionals, writers, artists, and skilled individuals can be rewarded monetarily for their creativity, work and knowledge. Dr. Paul Privateer, founder and President, believes that “YouMeThink.com offers students a real world reason to become better educated. We help students translate their involvement, self-reliance, and high academic performance into two opportunities: to earn money that, in turn, defrays the high cost of education, and, secondly, to promote their value as potential employees. Perhaps it’s time for student knowledge and work to be given a new value other than being assigned another A or B. Until the creation of YouMeThink.com, it was impossible for a student’s hard work to be globally shared or repurposed for the greater social good, given the nature of traditional education.”
According to Privateer, “the YouMeThink.com community–investing contests are entirely consistent with another aspect of our business vision, that is, to create a web incubator in which the knowledge content of our site facilitates the creation of global, purpose-driven communities. We stress the ’social‘ aspect of social media, doing everything we can to offer our users the opportunity to be rewarded for their knowledge or special interests, while also being able to form meaningful communities related to those interests.”
