Seeking university students to apply for the adventure of a lifetime
No money, no phones. One opportunity: travel across Europe for a week using only Red Bull cans as currency. Can you make it?
Applications are now open for the worldwide hit event, Red Bull Can You Make It? 2020. Through February 17, 2020, fearlessly creative students from around the world are invited to show off their skills and enter for the chance to participate in the event of a lifetime in April.
In the words of Abdul Majid, winning team member from Pakistan who made to Red Bull Can You Make It? 2018: “I just can’t describe in words how amazing and wonderful this trip was,” said Majid!
Participants will begin their journal from a Starting Point in Europe, where they will be tasked with traveling in teams of three to make it to Berlin using nothing but cans of Red Bull as currency along the way.
A dash to the finish line, Red Bull Can You Make It? isn’t only about winning; it’s about teamwork, determination, and how you make it. The boldest applicants from around the world will be chosen by a panel of judges and announced on March 9, 2020.
On April 21, 2020, the 200 selected teams, chosen from almost 60 countries around the world, will start their journey at one of the five starting points in Europe: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Budapest, Copenhagen, and Milan. Each team will hand over their cash, credit cards, and personal phones and have one week to make it to this year’s final destination, Berlin!
Students will be tasked with exchanging cans of Red Bull for everything they need along their journey – from food and a place to sleep, to transportation to the next location and other adventures that make the experience legendary.
Red Bull Can You Make It? 2020 comes on the heels of the last competition in 2018, when 198 teams managed to live the experiences of their dreams, from catching rides on commercial flights to backpacking across the European countryside.
So, wondering how YOU can be a part of history?
Step 1: Gather a team of three friends. Be sure everyone is a current university student.
Step 2: Create an up to one-minute-long video explaining why your team should be chosen and submit it at redbullcanyoumakeit.com no later than February 17, 2020. Be sure to share what makes you stand out. Are you an acrobat? A math whiz? Do you speak a foreign language or a secret skill no one knows about? These are all traits that make you stand out as the perfect choice to master Europe with nothing more than cans of Red Bull.
Step 3: Sit back, relax but…take action! Gather the support of your other friends, family members, and worldwide network, because the teams that receive the most votes from each country will become finalists! After the voting period ends, a panel of judges will select the winners from those top finalists.
Step 4: Make life-long memories: Finalist teams will be invited to fly into one of the five Starting Points in Europe to begin their adventure, which will take them far from home, but bring them closer together. Your chance to be one of those teams starts today.
