Polartec, expert maker and distributor of things for keeping people warm, recently created a contest for college outdoors clubs across the country. The competition, called “Made Possible,” offers $10,000 to the club with the best proposal for a new project. Middlebury’s own Mountain Club is one of four finalists. Their plan is to create a comprehensive book for incoming freshmen with directions to and insider info about tons of hiking-climbing-canoeing-swimming-chilling-etc. places in Vermont. This is pretty noteworthy, especially since MMC is the only finalist that isn’t a large university.
