Hult Prize Club's Fun Thursday: A Day of Interaction, Games, and Innovation
By Rebecca Nampiima
The Hult Prize Club recently hosted their first event this semester, "Fun Thursday." This event was not only a day filled with thrilling indoor games but also a platform to foster interaction among club members, introduce a new committee, and unveil the club's ambitious activities for the semester. The fun Thursday event saw members engage in various intellectually stimulating games, including chess, cards, UNO, and Scrabble. These games served as a unique icebreaker, allowing members to bond and form lasting connections.
Laughter and friendly competition filled the room as club members showcased their strategic prowess in chess, their quick thinking in UNO, and their wordplay skills in scrabble. Beyond the fun and games, the Hult Prize Club used this event to reveal its semester-long mission. As a club, they have set their sights on honing the crucial skill of pitching ideas, preparing their members for the prestigious Hult Prize annual challenge. This challenge is renowned for bringing together some of the brightest minds from around the world to address pressing global issues. The club intends to have semester challenges to prepare the club members for the global stage, and this semester we are focusing on the issue of the climate crisis with a theme of “Creating Solutions to Climate Change”.

These projects will be expected to align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), underscoring the club's commitment to making a tangible impact on global challenges.
By focusing on the climate crisis, the Hult Prize Club aims to inspire innovative solutions that can pave the way for a more sustainable future.
