Register Teams Early
We had the greatest impact and positive feedback when meeting with individuals or groups. Encouraging teams to form early and be known will allow for personal resource support and energize teams. A consideration could be made to have a draft deadline so that teams can get crucial feedback and time to make their proposals stronger.
Connect with Teams in Person
Meeting in person helped make the challenge more approachable. This was encouraging to newly formed teams and prompted follow-through.
Create one central info hub
Information about the challenge was posted in various places online. If there is a central go-to location for all the information and updates, less opportunities will be missed.
