Want to win great Overleaf prizes for your whole institution? Check out our Campus Challenge 2017! It’s fun and free – all you have to do is use Overleaf and encourage your friends and classmates to do so too!

Everyone who signs up from your institution – including students, faculty and staff – will earn ‘ducks’ for working on Overleaf. Each duck adds to your institution’s total score and at the end of the challenge, March 31, 2017, the institution with the most ducks wins free Overleaf Pro accounts for everyone at that institution, or one of our special prizes if your institution already has a site license!

There are lots of different ways to win, and all you have to do is make sure that you link your institutional email to your Overleaf account, if it’s not already. You can do that in the ‘My Profile’ section of your Overleaf account, or directly on the Campus Challenge page. We will then automatically track your progress towards your institution’s account, and you can view all institutional progress on the global leaderboard on Overleaf.

If you want to help boost your institutional progress, you can download and print the Campus Challenge posters and flyers – feel free to distribute those all around your campus. And don’t forget to share the Challenge link and information with your friends and colleagues! The more people from your institution who join and use Overleaf - the better your chance of winning the coveted title - Overleaf Campus Challenge Winner, 2017!!! And, of course, winning free Overleaf Pro accounts for everyone at your institution! ;-)

So let the challenge begin! Have fun and get your challenge on – and start collecting your ducks!
