(2019) Moai Worksite Competition Poster

Another Moai Worksite Competition! The competition will run for 10-weeks starting Monday, May 13 - July 15. Your Moai can collaboratively find intentional activities to do with each other before work, during breaks, or after work and will be competing for bi-weekly prizes amongst all registered Moai teams.

The rules are simple:

  1. Form a Moai team of 2-6 people.
  2.  Choose one activity, once a week, for at least 30 minutes that falls within one of the general principles: Moving Naturally, Right Outlook (purpose/downshifting), Eating Wisely, or Connecting.
  3. Moai Leader(s) log total time together each week.

Oregon Tech is also competing against 13 other worksites as a part of the competition; so the more often your Moai’s get together, the better our worksite’s chances are of winning overall! So, gather 2-6 team members, get creative with a team name, and register your Moai here:  https://goo.gl/forms/nJEUIcKKbjWw60wO2.
