Hyundai Fill Forward Challenge

How It Works

The Fill It Forward Challenge is the centerpiece of The Drive the Future: A Hyundai Experience and is designed to bring awareness to the issue of water sustainability by encouraging students, faculty and staff at three California colleges to compete for a $100K Sustainability Grant.

Beginning on November 4th, participants from Loyola Marymount University, Pepperdine University and Santa Clara University will scan a school specific tag using Cupanion’s Fill It Forward™ app every time they refill their reusable water bottles. Not only will they be able to track their own emissions savings; they’ll also give a cup of clean water to someone in need and help fund water-based projects around the world. The school with the most scanned refills when the challenge concludes on November 22nd will receive the $100,000 sustainability grant from Hyundai. 

To promote the contest onsite, Hyundai and the participating campuses are hosting a full line-up of Drive the Future programming that puts students, faculty and staff in the driver’s seat — literally! — to better the environment. A calendar of these events can be found below.
