***Application Deadline Extended to February 13, 2015***


To honor Robert Plaster, the Robert W. Plaster Foundation is sponsoring the “Can’t Never Could” Award to recognize an Enactus student who has “overcome significant obstacles in her or his life to achieve success and has used that success to advance Enactus on his/her campus.”  

  • Do you have one of those students whose life story is one of overcoming great obstacles and challenges who did not give up but kept going? 
  • Has that student been a valuable resource for you and your Enactus team as a leader and motivator?  

If so, he/she needs to be nominated for this significant honor.

Nomination Process

Nominations must be submitted online by the student's Enactus advisor and should answer the following questions in a 1-2 page nomination letter:

  • How has he/she overcome an extreme obstacle or challenge?  Rather than give up, explain how he/she persevered.
  • How has he/she channeled that experience into becoming a valuable resource to your Enactus team as a leader and motivator?
