Passive Program – Hall can receive points for every bulletin board that provides an educational campaign for the residents of the hall in regards to Sustainability and What Students Can Do.  No two bulletin boards can be identical to receive multiple points.  Flyers, Bathroom Talk and info boards may also be used for passive programming. In addition, a photo of each passive program must be submitted along with the evaluation form for point approval.

Active Program – Hall can receive points for every active event that provides a focus on sustainability.  Each event must be different.  Event proposal must be submitted to the Green Games Director no later than 7 days before the program is to occur.  In addition, a photo of each active event must be submitted along with the evaluation form for point approval.

Community Service Project – Hall must create and implement and/or join an already existing a community service project.  Each project must be at least 2 hours long.

Participation Points – Yes it is easy to gain points for event, but here is where the hall that wins will pull ahead.  Buildings receive points for every person that attends the kickoff event or events planned by the Assistant Director, Faculty Master or Green Games Director.  Provide a copy of the attendance sheet for the points.

Inter-hall efforts – Double points will be awarded for event collaboration with your sister building.
