Welcome to the University of Oxford Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and money for your JCR/MCR summer garden party, all for doing easy things to save energy, recycle and reuse!
Money for the summer garden party?
Yep! The Oxford colleges are competing to show their energy-saving credentials and at the end of the year the college that’s got the most involved in the campaign will win £250 towards their garden party. The college that does the most to promote recycling and reuse will get £150 too! To help your college come top make sure you follow our energy saving-tips. The latest leaderboard will appear here from mid-October.
Interesting, how can I win stuff?
We’ve got loads of great prizes to give out in our photo competitions, like Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!), formal hall tickets and NUS extra cards. These run once a fortnight and usually involve uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page or on Instagram via #OxfordSSO. There are lots of other competitions as well so join the email list and like the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.
