A team of Earlham College students was awarded $1 million in start-up capital after winning the Hult Prize, the world’s largest student competition for social good. President Bill Clinton personally awarded Earlham’s team with the prize in New York City on September 20.
"On behalf of everyone at Earlham, I congratulate the Magic Bus team on its success. It was a thrill to see them compete so well and to imagine the transformative change this plan can create. I am also gratified that the success of the Magic Bus team exemplifies exactly what we hope for our students — that they find opportunities to hone their individual gifts, explore global issues, and bring their passions to the challenge of creating positive change in the world."
— Earlham President David Dawson (2011-2017)
