The start of the RD BOOST challenge a helping hand for student associations

The second edition of the RD BOOST challenge organised by Rabot Dutilleul has started. Open to students, the aim of RD BOOST is to support a student association or an innovative student project with a strong entrepreneurial, social, artistic or sporting focus, in line with Rabot Dutilleul's social, societal and environmental commitments.
Rabot Dutilleul has been sponsoring student associations for 10 years. However, faced with many requests every year, it is more and more difficult to choose who to support. So, in 2015, the group launched the RD BOOST challenge to help it choose the candidates. Thanks to this competition, Rabot Dutilleul gives a financial boost to an innovative and meaningful association or project developed by the students in one of Rabot Dutilleul's partner schools.
In the 2018 edition, two prizes will be awarded: the "RD BOOST" prize worth €2,500 and the "Kudos Prize" worth €1,000.
The students have until 16th February 2018 to submit their applications and try to win one of the two prizes that will be awarded by a panel of judges in March 2018.



It is a challenge organised by Rabot Dutilleul which is open to students. Its goal? To support a student association or project:
> that has an entrepreneurial, social, artistic and sports, etc. focus;
> that is in line with the Group's social, societal and environmental commitments;
> and that is innovative.



Two prizes will be awarded:
