Announcing the Build the Movement Challenge Winners

Every movement needs an audience to share and spread its message. The same goes for the PeerForward Movement our Peer Leaders are working hard to build in each of our partner schools.   

That’s why, during the month of October, PeerForward ran the Build the Movement Challenge, a social media contest exclusively for PeerForward teams to grow their follower counts on Twitter and Instagram and reach a greater audience with the college-going messages they spread online. From Oct 1 to Nov 1, the PeerForward Communications Team tracked the number of followers on each of our PeerForward team social media accounts and calculated the percentage growth on each account. We chose percentages to make the contest fair between large schools and small schools. 

We saw some truly incredible work from our teams to build their social media presence over the past month. We are thrilled to announce the following teams as the winners of our Build the Movement Challenge:
