Crush COVID-19 Challenge Logo

"Stopping COVID-19 in its tracks…because at UO, we choose each other."

Let's CRUSH this, together!

Here at UO, every student has the right and responsibility to advocate for their own personal safety, and that includes COVID-19 safety.

This challenge aims to assist students with that advocacy, with a creative engagement tool and well deserved rewards to enhance COVID-19 safety both on campus and in the Lane County community. In the Crush COVID-19 Challenge, University of Oregon students can engage with COVID-19 safety information on a weekly basis and earn prizes along the way!

UO Students!

The UO Crush COVID-19 Challenge is for YOU!

During spring term 2021, step up to take weekly challenges, test your COVID-19 knowledge, and earn prizes! Register here, provide your contact information, and create a challenge user name to be displayed on prize pages, leader boards, and potentially on social media.

Each week, registered students will receive a text message with three weekly challenges to complete. Challenges range from simple, quiz-like multiple choice questions to photo and video uploads. Challenges will focus on COVID-19 related information and safe practices in an engaging way; informing and reminding you about the ways you can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and pointing you to the resources available to students.

How do you win prizes?

There are two ways to win prizes, one is helping us grow the game by inviting other Ducks and the other is by completing the weekly challenges.

Weekly Drawings: In addition to the grand prizes at the end of the term, students have the opportunity to win prizes EACH WEEK! Three challengers who completed the weekly challenge will be randomly selected as winners and can select a prize of their choice (see prize listings below).

Supercharged Drawings: Some challenges will be SUPERCHARGED! Select challenges will be worth extra tickets, and the three challengers for that weekly drawing will have the supercharged prizes to choose from (see prize listings below). Here’s the catch: you never know when a challenge week will be supercharged. So keep your eyes open and keep playing!

Sign Up COVID Crushers: At the end of the challenge, the top three challengers who have accumulated the most sign-ups will be awarded a COVID Crusher Sign Up prize of their choice (see prize listings below). The more friends you invite to play - and the more friends registe - the better chance you have of winning! There are two ways to invite your friends to play: (1) Text message (2) Social Media Sharing. See the “Invite!” tab inside the game to invite your friends to crush COVID-19!

Challenge Tickets: Every challenge you complete awards you a Challenge Ticket. The top three challengers who have accumulated the most challenge tickets will be awarded a Challenge Grand Prize of their choice (see prize listings below). The more challenges you complete…the better chance you have at winning!
