The 2012 winner was a group from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Their video was inspired by the group’s participation in the "$300 House project.” The group traveled to Fond des Blancs, Haiti with a team of professors and fellow students to help the poverty stricken town improve living conditions.
