The Big XII Voting Challenge is a friendly competition facilitated by the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life at the University of Texas at Austin. Modeled after existing challenges run out of the Big Ten and Southern Conferences, the Big XII Voting Challenge is a formal commitment by the member institutions of the Big XII Conference to promote nonpartisan civic engagement and voting/voter outreach across the conference. The purpose of the challenge is to use friendly competition between the institutions in the Big XII Athletic Conference to convince those schools and their student bodies to make an institutional commitment to improving voting and civic engagement on their campuses. Each campus will be expected to complete a Campus Engagement Plan and share their NSLVE data. Campuses will receive awards for "Most Improved Voter Turnout" and "Highest Voter Turnout."
