The votes are in – the top five finalists in the GW High5 Challenge have been named!

The GW High5 Challenge is open to all members of the GW community – alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff.  The 5 finalists are now in the running for a total of $39,000 in funding, provided by Steve Ross, GWSB ’81.

Each member of the GW community who makes a gift to a finalist counts as a vote of support, and the program with the most donors between April 22 and May 10 will receive the top prize of $20,000. Second place receives $10,000, third place $5,000, fourth place $3,000 and fifth place $1,000.

Nice story and glad to see that the station has improved even further. Also nice to see that this took place just after the 30th anniversary of the relaunch of WRGW, which took place on April 1, 1986. In fact that first broadcast only went to the speakers in the halls of the Marvin Center and the Rat on the 5th floor.

The Radio-Television department (of which I was a student) had “control” of the equipment in the dorms that allowed for broadcasting to the entire campus (carrier current), but it was an initiative of the Program Board and the then Dean of Housing that allowed us to get back on the air at the end of my sophomore year (after there being no student radio station at all my first two years on campus). I was pleased to be the General Manager for the relaunch and helped shepherd a very rickety first two years. We bought our first two CD players at Circuit City. My, how times have changed.

Perhaps the best part for me is that we helped fund the station by DJing parties all across campus, and to this day I am still DJing as a side gig to my full-time job. I was in DC last July 4th weekend, but sadly the entire Marvin Center was closed. I look forward to visiting when I can have the chance to visit.
