You can earn points by recycling and logging activities in the Gamer 4 Good website.
The resident with the most points wins:
- First Place: iPad Mini
- Second Place: Yeti Cooler
- Third Place: $100 textbook credit at the UA Bookstore
The floor that recycles the most will be treated to an excursion to Arkadia Retrocade for a day of old school arcade gaming.
In addition, earning Green Dollars (G$) allows you redeem this currency for prizes with local merchants.
It’s not too late to join the competition if you live in Pomfret.
How to Get Started
- Sign up at http://go4thegreen.gamer4good.com.
- Watch the tutorial.
- Load the Pomfret competition.
- Earn points by completing the Locate, Learn, Share, Game, Recycle activities.
University Housing partnered Gamer 4 Good to compete in this friendly cross-campus competition. It is also open to members of Greek Life, certain Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), some classes within Walton College and the Chancellor’s Office.
The competition runs from April 4-29.
How do I recycle?
- Deposit the items in the bins on your respective floor.
- Remember to self-report your recycling activities by quantities of items, not weight. If you don’t self-report, you don’t get points. Note we verify everything on the back end. We can disqualify anyone and any group gaming the system, e.g. inflating self-reported numbers, raiding recycling bins, going to Walmart asking for their cardboards, etc. The whole purpose is to make an impact, not to divert what’s already going to be recycled.
- A Pomfret green leader will take your recycling down to the Discussion Room on the first floor.
- Point matrix:
- 1 aluminum can = 100 pts.
- 1 corrugated cardboard = 50 pts.
- 1 plastic bottle (PET)/container (HDPE) = 25 pts.
- 1 sheet of paper = 1 pt. (Available to Chancellor’s Office only at this time)
What are Green Dollars?
- Green Dollars (G$) is our virtual currency within the app.
- Earn 1G$ for every 100 pts earned. G$ can be redeemed for rewards or donation in our marketplace.
- G$ can be purchased at a rate of $1 = G$20
- G$ can be gifted to other players (with a small fee)
