As we posted here, California needs 1,000,000 additional college graduates by the year 2025 in order to meet our state’s workforce needs. Each student who successfully completes college is “one in a million.” Sponsored by the Campaign for College Opportunity, the contest is for all currently enrolled college students. Here is how you can go for it:
