HYY's organisation contests 2014

02.05.2014

HYY's committees declare open the organisation contests of the year 2014. Deadline for entries depends on a category, the winner of each contest will be published in HYY's chairperson seminar on 11 Nov 2014. All contest juries will be published at the same time. The prize varies depending on a category.

Freshman event contest

Does your organisation arrange a unique or inspiring freshman event? The Committee for Tutor Affairs is looking for the best freshman event – something a little different, something new: sports, picnics, trekking... The event concept does not have to be new, but the event should be arranged in the coming autumn. The main criterion is that the event aims at taking into account all new students of the organisation.

You can participate in the contest by sending an informal description of  your freshman event (max. 300 words) and the contact person's details as an e-mail attachment (.doc/.odt/.pdf). Based on the event description, the Committee for Tutor Affairs chooses the five best events for the final round and will attend these events. The winner will be published in the chairperson seminar organised on 11 Nov, so the event should be arranged before that!
NB! Only organisations may participate.

Please send an e-mail including the description of your freshman event to the chairperson of the Committee for Tutor Affairs to ville.eerola@helsinki.fi no later than 15 Aug 2014. Late entries will not be considered.
The winner will receive one hundred (100) euro.
