  • One particpation = one code. You cannot enter a code more than once.
  • The Challenge begins October 1, 2020 and ends March 31, 2021.
  • Which team you are on depends on what your department is. Please check the Team List to see which team you are on. Some facultites have been split up and the Team Name does not correspond with the department name. Do not assume you know which team you are on.
  • Please note that the Team Names are just that, team names. They are not the names of the departments.
