By registering, you agree to all the terms and conditions below:
Registration for 2017 Westbon Road Trip Challenge Registration ends on March 17th, 11:59 pm PST. Feel free to register any time before this date!
Each team needs to have 4 people, all 4 team members should be international students who are currently studying in the U.S. By adding more diversity, we encourage all the teams to have 2 males and 2 females. You can only change your team members BEFORE submitting the form for the second round. Any changes are not allowed in the following process unless emergencies occur. Please refer to the questions below for more information regarding changing teammates.
Once you have registered as a team, you will receive a qualification letter to inform you whether your team has entered the second round of verification or not. The qualification form attached with the letter should be completed and sent back to us within a week.
Westbon always believes that organizing and planning your trip ahead will be very helpful. Your team should write up a road trip plan, which includes information of all the team members, destination, detailed travel schedule, and relevant legal documents. Your team will stay in pending status after submitting the second qualification form.
Yes. If you cannot find any teammates by any means, you are more than welcome to register as an individual participant. Westbon will help pair you up with other participants based on your registration information via our private LFG (Looking For Group) channel.
This is our private channel for applicants who were not able to form a team. In this channel, participants are encouraged to bundle up with other people and eventually to form a 2M&2F team. If you have registered as an individual participant, you will be invited to our LFG channel within 24 hours after you submit your social media contact info (Facebook/WeChat).
If you are not able to form a team by the end of the sign-up period, you can still participate in our Wild Card challenge without any restriction.
If you are familiar with sports game, you’ve probably known that the term through some big sporting events such as Tennis Championship, MLB, Olympic Games and DOTA The Internationals. Teams which fail to meet qualification standards are granted "wild cards", which allow them to enter as competitors who previously are not qualified for our normal registration. 2017 Westbon Road Trip Challenge provides opportunities for teams that couldn’t meet our normal qualification in the first place. Please refer to the Wild Card section on the Event Page for more information.
You can rent a car to participate in the road trip challenge. At least 2 of your members should have valid U.S. driver licenses.
The road trip must be at least 5 days long, so all the members would have time to finish the tasks given by us. We hope you enjoy your trip by taking lots of amazing pictures and spending time with your friends!
No, generally, you are not allowed to change teammates after the submission of the second verification form. If there’s any emergencies, you are allowed to change only 1 team member and you need to contact us within a week after you submit the second application. If you change 2 team members after submitting the second qualification form, your team will be automatically disqualified from the road trip challenge.
Westbon will announce the first part of the results in early March and the second half in late March. If your team has been chosen, you will hear from us via email or call.
The winning team will be selected based on comprehensive measurements - both on the poll results of the online public voting and on the total points each team obtains from completing the tasks given by Westbon. To prevent malicious brush ticket behavior, we require every voter to use his own school email (@.edu) to register a Westbon account in order to participate in voting. After login, each account is allowed to vote for any ONE of the eight teams. Only ONE vote is allowed per day, but you can re-vote on the other day. (e.g. 7 votes in total are counted if you vote on 7 consecutive days.)
Westbon will update every team’s latest developments as soon as possible. Meanwhile you’re welcomed to track your favorite team through all of our social media accounts. We will also make the winning team announcement via our official event page and various social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Weibo, WeChat, etc. Please subscribe/follow our social media accounts to receive the most updated information regarding 2017 Westbon Road Trip Challenge.
