It’s SELF Magazine’s 20th Anniversary, and to celebrate, SELF decided to pair with HerCampus.com to bring the massively successful annual Workout in the Park event to one college campus. With so many great colleges to choose from, picking just one lucky campus to host the first ever Workout on the Quad event was nearly impossible.
So, rather than making the difficult choice, SELF decided to leave the decision in the hands of the students and approached SMERC to figure out a way to use the award winning Workout in the Park Social Game to let students decide which school should host.
And thusly, the SELF Workout in the Park Social Game Challenge was born!
Students chose their school and competed against players from other schools to earn the most points by completing workouts and finishing quests.
A leaderboard tracked top schools and top players so participants could see how their school was doing and how their contributions stacked up to those of the other players.
Two weeks later, thousands of participants had entered over 100 major American universities to win the chance to host the Workout on the Quad event.
Leading schools boasted scores representing up to 10,000 in-game workouts performed by students hoping for their school to win.
Stay tuned HERE for the official announcement of the winning school.
