MYG Challenge Q&A:

What is this MYG Challenge?


It is a restructured series of our usual inter-project VA activities targeted at encouraging mingling and bonding between volunteers of MINDS MYG projects.


What is in it for us as volunteers?


The Challenge is meant to provide a platform for friendly competition among our volunteers without having to bring our clients into the picture. However, to stay relevant to us being a part of MYG which includes our valued clients, we're in the midst of getting MINDS' assistance in lining up prizes. Based on availability and also the eventual rankings of our projects, prizes will be awarded to share with clients during project sessions.


What are the pairings about?


Each leg of the Challenge (and we are planning 3) will see our 10 (8+2 autonomous) projects drawn into 5 pairs randomly. This is the furthest attempt we as organisers will take (as of now) to encourage inter-project mingling. Each game will see two projects contributing to the team representing them. Of course, we encourage further mingling while you're there!


How are the points tabulated?


Being the maiden 'season' of this restructured Challenge aiming to inject some continuity in future, the scoring system is still under testing. Each project will have points awarded during every leg of the Challenge, paired with different projects, over the year. The score for each project will be summed up at the end of the year. Each Win gives 20 points, each Draw 15, and every Loss 10.


How often are these legs held?


We will have one activity per quarter. The first was a low-key introduction of this Challenge in May and the last activity was MYG Bowling last quarter. Depending on the organising group each year, the activities may differ year to year.


How do I participate in MYG Challenge?


Just sign up with your respective project!
