Join the U in the Driver Seat All-Stars and win cash for your group. Every hard-working team has a chance to win cash and be recognized as a 1-star, 2-star, 3-star, 4-star or 5-star school. Teams receive points for completed and reported activities to earn their place as an All-Star! We keep track and post a Point Tracker throughout the year so you know where you’re at and how much more you will need to do to place as an UDS All-Star. Each level has a different cash value and a set of criteria you must meet. The UDS All-Star tallies close April 1, 2022. See complete rules, below.
IMPORTANT ITEMS TO REMEMBER
