The NORTH CYPRUS UNIVERSITY FREERICE challenge is on again for 2012. Last year, Middle East Technical University and Eastern Mediterranean University battled it out, with EMU coming out on top. You can follow the progress of the challenge in the chart below.
In case you are new to FREERICE, here is a video that explains how playing this online game can help fight the war on hunger.
It's a new year, so METU.NCC has a chance to redeem itself and win the FREERICE challenge for 2012. Bookmark this post, which will include an interactive chart of the competition which we'll update daily.
How to start?
Just go to http://freerice.com and create an account if you don't have one.
You need to JOIN the http://freerice.com/content-group/metu-ncc-2012-north-cyprus-challenge. The group page should look like this:
- After you login for the first time, go to GROUPS and search for METU. Join the METU NCC FREERICE CHALLENGE 2012
- When viewing the GROUP DASHBOARD click PLAY (button is on the right) to send any rice that you start earning to that group.
- MAKE SURE you PLAY for our METU group each time you log in, so that the grains of rice are allocated to our group.
- Please encourage your peers to play. If only 200 METU students and staff spend 15 minutes playing FREERICE before the 31st, they will each earn 5,000 grains of rice, or 1,000,000 grains in total. That would put enough to put the pressure on EMU to keep up.
