How scoring works in Lister Hall

Each resident who completes a Green Spaces application will be awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold depending on the number of actions they have completed.

For scoring in the Green Space Challenge, bronze certifications are worth 1 point, silver certifications are worth 2 points, and gold certifications are worth 3 points. Each floor will receive a rating based on the ratio of points earned to the maximum possible to earn.

In other words, to receive 100%, everyone on the floor must receive gold certification; if everyone on the floor receives silver certification, the floor's score will be 66%; and so on.

The floor receiving the highest score wins! In the case of a tie, preference will be given to the floor with the most gold, followed by silver, certifications.
