Pssst. Hey, you! Ever wanted to go on that coming-of-age Euro trip everyone talks about, but find your bank account painfully empty?
Well, there is now a way for you to do so, and for free! Enter the “Red Bull Can You Make It?” challenge that will bring university students in groups of three from around the world across Europe!
The selected teams from various countries will have 7 days to travel a 1,000 km plus journey across Europe, bartering their way ONLY with Red Bull cans for accommodation, food, experiences and even transportation to make their way to the final destination, Amsterdam!
Participants will get to visit various checkpoints in European cities to undertake tasks on the provided Adventure List, all while posting photos and videos to build support for their teams.
Judges will pick the final winner based on scores garnered from Checkpoint Challenges, Adventure List tasks and Social Following gathered. Of course, the first team to reach Amsterdam will also earn major Major points!
On 6 March 2018, 200 selected teams from 60 countries around the world will depart from a starting point in Europe.
Applications are now open and will be closed on 14 February 2018.
In case you’re wondering if it is even possible to travel in Europe by bartering with Red Bull cans – don’t worry! Cause it’s been done before. Just ask The Hibiscus Tigers, Kayla, Jason and Alston from University Malaya who entered 2016’s “Red Bull Can You Make It” leg of the race, and placed 27th out of 165 teams!
Sounds good right? Wanna join? Read the following steps carefully:
Step 1: Gather a team of three friends. You’ll each need to be a current university student.
Step 2: Create a one-minute-long video explaining why your team should be chosen and
submit it at redbullcanyoumakeit no later than February 14, 2018. Be sure to
share what makes you smart, clever, travel ready and primed for the adventure of your life.
Step 3: The next step is to earn online votes before getting to the starting line. After the voting
period ends, a panel of judges will select teams to represent their country. They will then
be invited to fly to one of the five Starting Points in Europe to begin their adventure.
So how? Can you make it for “Red Bull Can You Make It?”
