A game with a purpose!
|Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC), now in its 26th season, highlights the wealth of academic talent at America's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Honda supports HBCUs because of the unique and critical role they play in higher education, and because they have helped literally millions of students achieve their dreams through the years.
More than $7.5 million in grants from Honda have provided support for book & tuition scholarships, facilities upgrades, and other investments to improve the student experience.
Through participation in HCASC, students gain skills and connections which benefit their lives, their careers, and their communities. They start as competitors, but they become "friends for life." This network of over 100,000 supports each other to realize "The Power of Dreams."
HCASC alumni span the U.S. and abroad. Their career paths are varied -- they are doctors, teachers, lawyers, community-builders, scientists, professors, architects, researchers, writers & journalists, military & government officials, business leaders & entrepreneurs, artists, engineers, economists, musicians, and more.

Honda highlights the HCASC program with its associates and executive team, and HCASC stands as a testament to the special relationship between Honda and the HBCU community, as well as Honda’s continuing commitment to diversity and education.
The year-round HCASC season begins when students arrive in the fall. Power Search quizzes, given across campus where students learn, gather, study and live, help identify the superstars. Next, HBCUs hold campus tournaments and form their HCASC Club. Practice sessions commence, with an emphasis on knowledge acquisition and team building.
In December, the coach selects the varsity team. In January, teams attend official National Qualifying Tournaments which help determine the field for the National Championship.
The 2015 National Championship will be held March 21-25 at American Honda in Torrance, California. The Finals will be live streamed here at HCASC.com starting at 12 noon ET on Monday, March 23rd.
The NCT schedule includes welcome activities, rigorous competition, a day at Honda, and for the players, a post-competition trip to Disneyland. The closing awards acknowledge the teams and individuals, and sends them on their way to pursue their dreams with hundreds of new connections and BFFs.
