Holly's Helpful Hints: How To Earn Rewards For Being AWESOME

This week I am going to digress a little for my usual helpful hints. Instead, I'd like to talk about this badge:

This badge can be found on the profiles of some of the most awesome members of the Community. Why? Because it's our Blackbaud Champions badge.

We all spend a lot of time here in the Blackbaud Community - answering questions, seeking advice, and learning from each other. What if I told you that you could earn rewards for doing all those things? How would you like a free certification exam? Or the occasional gift card? Or even a free trip to bbcon? All those things are possible through our Blackbaud Champions program.

To join Blackbaud Champions, simply click here, complete a profile, and start completing challenges.

And, if you're already a Champion, don't forget to earn points for claiming your Champions badge, answering questions, and taking lots of other cool actions here in the Community!

Nice! My workplace is closed starting tomorrow, and it reopens in 2017. I might, however, try to tune in to this for the sake of Points-A-Palooza!

Awesome, Jessica! Enjoy your time off!

for some reason I thought you only got points for posting to a question that had no responses - so it is just responding to any post?! Love the points-a-palooza name! :)

Joanne, we changed it up a little this year as the type of questions have evolved from basic Q and A into discussions.

If you are not already a Blackbaud Champion - why not?!  Seriously you learn stuff...and can really earn stuff.  And you put as much - or as little - time into it as you want, but it really is a cool way to stay connected and get rewarded as well.  It is how I earned my certification exam - through points via the Champion program.  And you get a BBCON discount as well

Hi Holly. I am sure I all of us are hard at work on different badges. Can you give explanations for the ones, like Amplifier, Facilitor and Inquirer? I am sure I have completed some of these. Is there a place where we can view how close we are to earning each badge? If not, it would be a great community addition on each of our profiles.  Thank you!

Hey Eileen, I love the idea of progress trackers for badges. You can track your points towards the big level badges on your MyCommunity page. As for the other badges, right now, all you can do is access a list of all the badges that exist. You can find that in our badge glossary (click on any badge image on your profile page to get there).
