The single unit of stewardship effort for TSN Spring Challenge, volunteer or professional, whatever the category, is hours. If you spend 8 hours caring for your garden, removing trash from a local park, or volunteering for a TSN Member Community, that’s 8 hours into the program. If you and three friends do the same work in one quarter of the time, that’s (4 people x 2hrs =) 8 total hours also. Easy, right? But here’s the catch: we can only celebrate you if we know what you did and we only know what you did if you report it!
This form is now closed, thank you for participating in this year's Spring Challenge. We'll see you next year!
New for 2023: BOOSTS
Look, we know how tempting it is to delay reporting and how much more inspirational it is for your peers if you don’t. This year, thanks to the support of some new sponsors and allies, we’re out to make timely reporting an extremely compelling choice with TSN Spring Challenge Boosts!
Each Tuesday during the twelve weeks of this program, our staff will draw a random name from amongst all the people who submitted a report before 11:59pm Monday night. If the name drawn is an independent steward with no stated organizational affiliation, that person gets to choose any of the remaining tokens of appreciation we’ve procured for this effort. If the name drawn has claimed any group affiliation, they get their pick and the organization does, too!
To clarify, any number of reports in a single week still equals one name in our drawing and the number of hours per report does not impact your chances, so while it pays to report early and often, you can feel very free to combine each week’s reports into one entry at your discretion.
