Ideas

Viral challenges

Ideas also need to be engaging enough to get people involved, and quickly.

Photo challenge

A photo challenge can be a fun and engaging way to spread the word online about volunteering and its benefits.

Here are some considerations for organising a photo challenge:

  • Promote the challenge early on social media and with flyers.
  • On the day, arrange a meet up time where people can get into small teams.
  • You could then challenge each small team to take a photo for Instagram that resembles the theme of community, with three lines describing the image and why it shows community with the hashtag #NSVW18.
  • Throughout the day, monitor the posts and at the end of the day, the teams return to the meet up where you announce the winner.
  • The winning photo can be given a prize such as two free tickets to a film and/or getting to have their photo displayed on your website.

Viral video challenge

A viral video challenge can be an exciting and interactive way to spread the buzz about volunteering and benefits attached.

Before you get started, here are a few considerations for planning a viral video challenge.

  • Choosing your challenge topic: Think of a challenge that helps your audience plan and ties in with your overall focus.
  • Technical make or breaks: How will your challenge be publicly available? Will it be posted via Facebook? YouTube?
  • Promotion pre-challenge: Promote the upcoming challenge in advance through social media platforms and print media (flyers and posters on campus).
  • Content creation: On the challenge day, arrange a meet up with the participants who will be completing the challenge and the people who will be involved with production.
  • Have fun! Break the internet like Kim K and have fun while promoting volunteering.
