What is the best way to earn points?

You can attend any of the events in the calendar below. They have been designated as part of the challenge. ALL events are equal to one challenge point whether virtual or in person. The group running the program will provide a method to verify attendance.

When are point totals updated?

Point Totals will be updated twice a week. Once on Monday evening so we can do our weekly electronic gift card drawing and once on Thursday evening to keep the list up to date.

What if I join late or miss a week?

There is no expectation for people to go to EVERY event and therefore you can join a little late or miss a week and should still have the capacity to reach the challenge goal of 30 points. If you join very late or miss a lot of opportunities you have the option to aim for the weekly drawings of gift cards but may not receive the JC goodie pack if you miss the total of 30 points.

How do I complete the challenge?

To conquer the challenge participate in 30 or more events from the Jonathan's Challenge calendar over the 8 weeks of the challenge.

What rewards can be achieved in the challenge?

  • 30+ points gets you Jonathan's Challenge Finisher T-Shirt and prize pack + an opportunity to win one of the $100 Amazon Gift Cards
  • Earn 2+ points in a week and join the pool for the weekly e-gift card drawings
  • Each JC event = 1 JC Point

How many points can I earn each week?

Each event on the calendar is worth 1 point for participating in the experience. We encourage you to go outside your comfort zone and try new things. You can earn as main points as there are events on the calendar for each week, just make sure to balance your academics too!
