Three Maryland Smith students were recognized by the Do Good Institute for their commitment to supporting their fellow students, addressing crucial issues and leading fearlessly. Dan Kossoy, Roxanna Kazemzadeh and Casey McCarthy were among the 38 students selected from thousands of students across the University of Maryland campus who competed in the annual Do Good Challenge. All three were mailed medallions to wear during their virtual commencement ceremonies.
The Do Good Challenge is an eight-week challenge created by University of Maryland students to encourage each other to create ventures that have a positive social impact, with $20,000 in prize money on the line to fund the best ideas.
Riggs Alumni Center was full of passion and energy at the third annual Do Good Challenge. Students Helping Honduras and justlikeyou.org were the two winners of the night, each winning $6,000. Students Helping Honduras also won the Audience Choice Award, a $2,500 text-to-vote prize sponsored by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Both Students Helping Honduras and justlikeyou.org are led by undergraduates at the Robert H. Smith School of Business.
