Kappa Psi brothers from Wayne State University's Mu Omicron Pi chapter won top honors at the 2020 Up to Us competition, which is designed to raise awareness about topics concerning the growing national debt.

As part of the spring cohort, the WSU team bested others from across the nation to take home the title of Best Overall Campaign.

Team Mu Omicron Pi focused on how COVID-19 has affected the United States. Their winning multimedia campaign included a variety of topics such as the CARES Act, spending habits of Americans during the pandemic, how to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, and its burden on the American health care system.

"By engaging a wide audience and exploring a variety of important, timely topics, our team was able to make the national debt relevant and personal to their community," said team member and student pharmacist Joseph Paul Javier.
