Earlier this month, Western Kentucky University won the ONE Campus Challenge—a friendly contest to see which college students are the best anti-poverty advocates. This Tuesday, April 29, Western Kentucky students will receive their prize: a cookout and concert in their honor.
The show will include messages from Bono and Chris Daughtry and performances by Army of Me, Georgie James, and Martin Royle. The place will also be packed with ONE members young and old from all over Western Kentucky and Northwest Tennessee, so this will be a great chance to meet other folks dedicated to the fight against poverty in the area.

For the last 6 months, WKU has been an epicenter in the fight against extreme poverty and global disease. As part of the ONE Campus Challenge they have signed up thousands of new ONE members and used their swelling ranks to put pressure on law makers to fully fund the international affairs budget, cosponsor the Global Child Survival Act, and pass PEPFAR.
Fighting poverty is what we do best. But we also know how to throw a good party, especially when that party is to celebrate the best young ONE advocates in the country. I hope that you will join me in celebrating their work and their successes.
I have no idea if this means that Bono will actually be there or if it's simply a taped message, but it's rather exciting all the same. :)
