Attention adventure-loving university students! Pack your 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 the Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge, a five-day cross-country adventure competition from August 29 to September 2, 2012.

The Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge brings 5 teams of 3 university students to six exciting and scenic destinations all over the Philippines. Armed with P30,000 in cash, the teams get to test their resourcefulness and adventurous spirit in select Philippine destinations, with some challenges along the way. The team that gets to do the most number of challenges in each destination and ends up with the most travel savings wins the challenge. To join, teams composed of three college students who are 18 years old and above must submit a video that showcases their love for travel and adventure. Entries must answer the question: “How far will your team go for a fun adventure?”

Deadline for submission is on August 16, 2012.

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,” said Cebu Pacific VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.
