Hi everybody, :wavey:

We are really excited to be kicking off our Grow your Grades competition once again!!!

BUT, we need your help!

For the last few years we have given out a brand new MacBook as our top prize. We do this as we think it is a great prize to give to students who are looking to carry on their academic journey. However, it's been a few years since we last sense checked if this was the kind of prize you would like!

We wanted to gather your opinions on what kind of prizes you guys would like to see. We have two main options that I've added in the poll, but please feel free to discuss in the thread below as well. Would you guys like one big prize for the main winner at the end, like a MacBook, or would you like a slightly smaller main prize so that we can offer a few different prizes along the way?

Just to let you guys know, we will take all the opinions into account but the final decision has yet to be made. We just want to get your guys input

Please let us know what type of prizes would interest you and get you to start and continue your blog, and if you would prefer smaller prizes or one big prize.

Good luck on the year ahead !

This is such a difficult question!

I do think though managing to start a GYG and reach the end whilst regularly updating is a huge task and many people drop out along the way so the winner should definitely be rewarded accordingly.

However, small regular prizes sound like a such great idea to maintain motivation for others.

We need both options available lol

I think it would be nice to have awards for things other than just "best blog of the whole year" like... idk, "most unique" has been suggested, maybe one for best academic comeback (since this is called 'grow your grades' after all).
A Macbook would be lovely but I'm quite happy with my current laptop anyway so that isn't a big motivator for me.

The macbook sounds great but I agree that smaller prizes every so often may be nice- sometimes it is hard to post over a long period of time!

Agreed, on needing a mixture of the two - I know from previous years how easy it is to lose motivation along the way especially when it's an important/hectic year for you.

Mini prizes would be good but maybe keep a medium-ish prize for an overall winner right at the very end?

A gift card would work well. Or a nice box of chocolates, or bottle of wine etc. Even a makeup set would not go amiss either. Books are always appreciated too.
