The KSCV/GSCV Takeover is a great way for you to earn prizes for your student group – gain funding and advertising, and have fun doing it – all whilst improving your skills and making yourself more employable! Compete against other student groups by earning the most KSCV/GSCV Awards before 10th March and you could win:
- Design and name your own burger at The Deep End (with a portion of the profits going to your group).
- Design and name your own cocktail at The Deep End (with a portion of the profits going to your group).
- Advertisement of your group on the GK Unions website, Facebook page and Twitter feed, as well as on TV screens in The Hub.
- Advertisement of your group on posters at The Deep End.
- A certificate of achievement, and bragging rights.
Read on to find all the rules and how the winners will be chosen...
KSCV/GSCV Takeover Rules
You must be elected onto a society committee to be eligible to compete. The four groups that will be part of the contest are as follows:
For any clarity on this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Winners will be decided in the following way;
Round One: Most number of KSCV/GSCV Awards in a committee.
KSCV/GSCV Awards will be worth a certain number of points, with Bronze=10, Silver=20, Gold=40 and Gold+=60.
Committee 1: 9 members, 3 bronze, 2 silver.
Committee 2: 7 members, 2 bronze, 1 gold.
Committee 1: (3 x 10) + (2 x 20) / 9 = 7.8
Committee 2: (2 x 20) + (1 x 40) / 7 = 11.4
From this example, committee 2 would have won this round. If the number of awards is the same amongst several joint winning societies, then it will carry on into the second round.
Round Two: Most hours logged.
This will again be an average across the whole committee.
Committee 1: 367 hours for a committee with 9 members.
Committee 2: 274 hours for a committee with 7 members.
Committee 1: 40.78
Committee 2: 39.14
This would mean that committee 1 would have won, and would thus be the overall winners. As you can see, more committee members doesn’t necessarily mean you have a greater chance of winning.
All committee members who have been formally elected into a committee role for the Academic year 2016/2017 are included in the competition, and you cannot opt a committee member out. This also means a student group cannot opt in non-elected members.
The competition will run from Monday 6th February to Friday 10th March, however hours from May 12th 2016 will count, and will go towards your KSCV/GSCV Awards.
Volunteers must be signed up to the KSCV or GSCV Toolkit (www.gkunions.co.uk/toolkit) in order to log their hours and work through the KSCV/GSCV Scheme. Students can email David at email@example.com for assistance using the Toolkit.
In order for a KSCV/GSCV Award to count, you must complete all of the criteria for that Award level before the competition deadline. Just logging the correct number of hours won’t be sufficient to achieve the hours for that Award.
