Awana T&T Candy Contest

Our Candy Contest for T&T was a great!  70% of our 80 T&T clubbers participated.

We announced the Candy Contest in January and allowed clubbers 5 weeks to work on completing handbook sections before closing the contest.  We set the following standards:  if clubbers finished 8 sections, they could receive a small candy, 12 sections for a medium size candy, and 20 sections for a large candy.

We purchased some charts from a nearby Learning Center, wrote each clubbers name on a line, and then gave them a sticker for each section recited for the 5 weeks of the contest.   The clubber’s tracked their own progress, and that was part of the fun. 

 This was a great visual, both for clubbers and for parents.  At the end of the night, I noticed kids showing parents their progress…a little peer pressure can be a good thing, that’s exactly why we have incentive nights, to get kids (and parents) motivated to complete their handbooks  (12 kids worked hard for 20 sections and the large candy choice).

This incentive night was a keeper!
