The ultimate Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge has been launched by airline company Cebu Pacific with students eyed as main participants.
Adventure-loving university students can now pack their bags and prepare for the ultimate travel adventure, courtesy of the country’s largest airline.
Cebu Pacific invites college students who are passionate about traveling to join ultimate challenge, a five-day cross-country adventure competition from Aug. 29 to Sept. 2.
The Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge brings five teams of three university students to six exciting and scenic destinations in the Philippines.
Cebu Pacific vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said the participants will be armed with P30,000 in cash pocket money to be used for the challenge.
“The teams get to test their resourcefulness and adventurous spirit in select Philippine destinations, with some challenges along the way.”
She added the team who gets to do the most number of challenges in each destination and ends up with the most travel savings wins the challenge.
To join, she said, teams composed of three college students who are 18 years old and above must submit a video that showcase their love for travel and adventure. Entries must answer the question, “How far will your team go for a fun adventure?”
The deadline for submission is on Aug. 16.
Iyog said the winners of the Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge will enjoy more travel perks from Cebu Pacific. The top three teams get tickets to any of Cebu Pacific’s international or domestic destinations.
Extra prizes at stake include cameras, mobile phones, and hotel tour packages.
“Students will surely have a blast making the audition video and racing across the country. We look forward to their brilliant ideas when it comes to having fun even while on a budget,” Iyog said.
