Enter Your School in the Sebastian What's Next Student Program

SchooltribeSebastian Professional's What's Next Student program saw hundreds of applications last year from students proclaiming why they deserved to be chosen as part of the Sebastian Student Tribe. Fifteen lucky students were chosen, and led the charge to put their school on the map during the What's Next Awards Competition.

These 15 students had exclusive access to the Sebastian Professional leadership and Design Team members for inspiration, tips and mentorship. They also held live viewing parties at their school where they cheered on their counterparts during the What’s Next Awards.

This year, Sebastian Professional is going even bigger, and will be selecting fifteen schools, dubbed the Sebastian School Tribe, to participate in exclusive inspirational and educational training with the Sebastian Professional Team. If you want your school to participate and help you make it big with Sebastian, post a photo of your work on Instagram and use the hashtag #SebastianSchool #SchoolName to be entered to join the team.

What is the School Tribe?
The Sebastian School Tribe is a group of 15 exclusive schools that believe that their students have what it takes to win the Sebastian What’s Next Awards. They will be given exclusive access to the Sebastian team to help their students through the application process.

How to Enter
