Research Hub Rally

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOU OR YOUR TEAM >>

About this: The Research Hub Rally is your opportunity to explore the rich content, camaraderie, professional engagement, and scholarship opportunities aboard the University of Phoenix Research Hub as well as several of the many KWB Summit plenaries and/or presentations, in the form of our Research Hub Rally. Hub Rally team members compete for quality noise canceling in-ear headphones that can block out 90 percent of background noise.

How to register: Eligibility begins with your virtual team (membership up to four) registration by 11:59 p.m. Mst Wednesday, August 15, 2018. Individuals and teams who are active and in good standing University of Phoenix students or faculty (at all enrolled degree levels), as well as UOPX alum and or those outside stakeholders who have a public Hub affiliate page posted, can qualify. Having a team member with affiliation is important as he or she will have access to nonpublic pages that are part of the rally. Research hub chairs, Office of Scholarship Research Staff are not eligible.

How to play: After officially registering by 11:59 p.m. MT Tuesday, August 14, 2018, participants will be emailed a series of virtual Hub Rally questions as an attached document. It is recommended that the document is saved and answers are added to the document by you as you work throughout the Research Hub or attend any number of plenary and presentations via the Shindig platform. In the end, your answers will be entered and submitted on an electronic form (with the link to the form contained in the email) in one sitting. Unfortunately, there is not a way to start the form and save your answers in order to return at another time.

Crossword Puzzles

About this: The Crossword Puzzles are your opportunity to find clues within specific presentations to complete a puzzle. Prizes range from Amazon.com to Starbucks electronic gift certificates for crosswords. 

How to register: No registration is needed! If you are attending any session that features a crossword puzzle, simply navigate to that interactive puzzle within the table below.  The link will be active during the presentation.  Make sure to plan ahead to attend a presentation below! 

How to play: Attend the presentation, complete the puzzle, and take a screenshot of the puzzle solution and submit using the link below.  Be sure to include your name, relationship to UOPX or otherwise. Please do not use this address for questions as we simply cannot accommodate these during the conference. The crosswords are self-explanatory. If you are not able to solve all the words, you are encouraged to still submit for it is possible you can still win if all but one word is solved. One winner will be selected for each puzzle. The first entry that completely solves a puzzle and sends a screenshot of the puzzle solution by using the link below will qualify your entry into that contest (one wrong or missing answer allowed).
