RA Incentive Program

Its as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Win points by scheduling events with the Econauts!
  2. The college with the most points at the end of each quarter wins.
  3. Each RA in the winning college gets a VISA giftcard

Here’s some more info on the RA Incentive program:

RAs should stay tuned for emails regarding extra points for events such as Sixth Week Swap, promotions like our Zero Waste campaign, and holidays such as Earth Week.

Points are awarded to each residential area (6 colleges and the Village) based on RA collaboration and resident attendance at RA scheduled Econaut programs. VISA gift cards are awarded to all RAs in the residential area that has the most points by week 10 during Fall and Winter quarter and week 8 during Spring quarter. The college with the most overall points by week 8 Spring quarter will receive the HDH Sustainability Award at the Rezzies! To participate, schedule one of the events below— or work with us to create your own sustainable-minded event! Email to find out more.
