Georgetown University is one of eleven selected colleges participating in Up to Us, a nationwide competition to educate campus communities about our federal government’s long-term debt. Hoyas are competing against ten other schools to see who can run the best campaign. The first place prize is $10,000. If Georgetown wins any prize money, we have committed it to a charitable cause that students will choose. This campaign is funded by the Clinton Global Initiative in a partnership with Net Impact and the Pete G. Peterson Foundation. Go to for more information.
