It's our 3rd annual Social Media Challenge Week!

What is Social Media Challenge Week: A week long chance for your team to collect some bonus points for the team challenge. There will be a new challenge for each day of the week. We have an exciting new prize and element this year so read on for full details.

How it works: Each day of the week will be a new challenge. This year, we are giving teams each challenge in advance so that you have more time to prepare them. There will also be one "bonus" challenge which will be a surprise so keep an eye out for that as well!

Submissions:

Submissions must be made by completing two steps in order to receive the points:

  1. Uploading to the Dropbox link we provide for each challenge ​. You will have until NOON the day of the challenge to submit your entry on Dropbox. For example, Monday's challenge will be due by Monday at noon.

  2. Posting and tagging us on social media @jacocompanyprogram (you must tag the correct JACO Company Program account) - posts should be made through your student company social media account!  You must post the challenge on Instagram (+any other channels) by noon on the day of the challenge. For example, Monday's challenge can be posted anytime between Sunday afternoon to Monday at noon, Tuesday's challenge can be posted anytime between Monday afternoon to Tuesday at noon, etc. 

Team Challenge Points: 15 points will be awarded for each challenge completed. One entry per challenge per team is allowed. Only those who complete both steps indicated above will receive the points.

Important Reminders:

  • These challenges are made to be done VIRTUALLY. NO IN-PERSON INTERACTIONS. Please follow the social/physical distancing guidelines!

  • Be professional and respectful at all times – any submissions that do not follow our JA guidelines will be disqualified from the Team Challenge and could potentially jeopardize your applications for other group awards and/or your participation in CP. This includes any misconduct we find or are notified of on social media pertaining to these challenges (i.e. inappropriate comments, language, actions, etc.)

  • Do not post full names of students, advisors or anyone online.

  • Do not include photos/images of students, advisors or anyone without their consent. Please check in with your advisor to confirm if there are any students that do not have photo/media consent. 

  • Collaborate and get creative! Even though you’re social distancing you can still find ways to collaborate with your colleagues on these challenges and have fun!
