How do I sign up?

How does it work?

The Power Challenge begins on February 24, 2020 and ends on March 22, 2020. On the Monday of each week, tasks will be released for you to complete individually or with your teammates before the weekly deadline (Sunday).

The Power Challenge tasks are divided into five categories, one for each of the Husker Student POWER framework:

  1. Purpose: Find, deepen, and achieve your purpose for pursuing higher education
  2. Ownership: Take ownership of your story and your educational journey
  3. Well-being: Be the best version of yourself
  4. Engagement: Engage in experiences that prepare you to excel in a global society
  5. Relationships: Build relationships with your peers, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members

Once a task is completed, submit the item for proof on Canvas by completing the quiz for that task before that week's Sunday deadline. 

How is the Challenge Scored?

The Power Challenge is scored both individually and by team. Each week, the tasks turned in by Sunday will be scored and current team and individual rankings will be posted.

Team standings will be figured by averaging all team members’ scores to determine the team’s overall score. The last day to submit proof of task accomplishment will be Sunday, March 22, 2020. Any tasks submitted after this date will not be considered.

The winning teams and individuals will be announced during the first week in April!

What are the Prizes?

Prizes will be awarded to the members of the top-scoring team as well as the top ten individuals scorers based upon the scores accumulated by the end of the challenge. Additionally, the top ten individual scorers each week will also win a prize. For all prizes, winners will be notified via email and each winner will be responsible for picking up their prize.
