Seminars Challenge already started since last year during Seminar Series, and it will continue to do so on February 7-10; 14-17, 2017
during Jobfair 2017. This means that the points you garnered from last semester will carry over to this 2nd semester.
Note: Schedule and venue of talks will be released punctually
Seminars Challenge - Individual Category is open to ALL undergraduate and graduate engineering students currently enrolled except for UP CAPES Executive Board members.
1. If you do not have an existing CAPES account, create one by accessing capesaccounts.upcapes.org
2. Start earning points by attending Jobfair Company Talks on February 7-10; 14-17, 2017 during Jobfair 2017.
3. Convert your points to electronic raffle tickets at http://capesaccounts.upcapes.org for a chance of winning Seminars Challenge - Individual Category prizes.
You can avail as many electronic raffle tickets as you can depending
on how you allocate your points (e.g. 500 points = 2 Lead electronic raffle tickets or 2 Principal electronic raffle tickets
+ 1 Featured electronic raffle ticket + 20 unused points).
You can still earn points even if you have not created your CAPES account, BUT you are unable to convert them into electronic raffle tickets.
You can convert your points into electronic raffle tickets from February 7, 2017 until February 20, 2017 (11:59 PM) only.
After February 21, 2017, points in CAPES accounts will be reset to zero.
A grace period of fifteen (15) minutes will be alloted for each Jobfair Company Talk. A student registering within this grace period will receive full points. A demerit of 1 point per minute will be implemented should a student register later than fifteen (15) minutes. However, all attendees will gain a minimum of 10 points regardless of the time they registered. (e.g. arriving 30 minutes after the start of a talk will only merit 25 points).
Note: Points earned in the Seminars Challenge - Individual Category will automatically apply to the Seminars Challenge - Organizaational
Points can be viewed at http://capesaccounts.upcapes.org
Prizes will be awarded on February 21, 2017 with further details to follow.
