October 2017 MINI-CHALLENGE Volunteers!

It’s that time again, and we’re gathering mini-challenges for the October 21, 2017 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY Read-a-thon!

Who? Anyone who has participated in the Read-A-Thon before and knows how the Mini-Challenge piece of the puzzle works.

How? Fill out the form below.

What? You provide the Mini-Challenge and some sort of prize. If you are unable to provide a prize, we will do our best to conjure one for you, but we cannot be certain of it! 15 minutes before your hour hits, you post your challenge. An official directions email will surface in your inbox about a week prior to the ‘thon.

Please keep in mind, that participants should be able to easily complete your challenge in 5-10 minutes, so nothing terribly complicated! We want to host challenges across platforms, but keep in mind that we’d like as many participants to be able to take part as possible. That makes some platforms more limiting than others (for instance, a challenge on Litsy requires that all participants have the app).

When? October 21, 2017. If there are more mini-challenge host volunteers than hours in the ‘thon, the wonderful Mini Challenge Volunteer Coordinator will pick the 21 best-suited for readers. These will be fun and stimulate many different parts of the brain, to give you guys a rest and a little rehab from all of that READING!

Without further ado, let there be mini-challenges!
