Бонус ұпай қалай жинауға болады?

Қатысушылардың Instagram желісіндегі парақшасында SPT олимпиадасы туралы қызықты әрі креатив пост жариялау арқылы 1-ден 5-ке дейін бонус ұпайға ие болу мүмкіндігі бар. Пост сурет, мәтін немесе видео сияқты кез келген форматта бола алады.

Шығармашылық шектеу жоқ, қиялыңа ерік бер!
Арманыңды жаз, әңгіме құрастыр, видео түсір, достарыңа мотивация бер,  оларды да қатысуға шақыр!

Бұл – тіпті қосымша 0,5 ұпайдың грант иесі атануда шешуші рөл атқара алатын тұсы. Сондықтан мұндай тамаша мүмкіндікті міндетті түрде пайдалануға кеңес береміз.


  • Қызықты және креативті пост жариялау (мәтін 50 cөзден кем емес, қатысышының өз атынан жазылады)
  • Cуретте @sdukz белгілеу (tag)
  • Хэштег – #spt2020 #sdukz
  • Пост соңында аты-жөнін, кластер мен ЖСН соңғы 6 цифрін хэштег арқылы көрсету (мысалы, Ахметов Айбек, #Кластер5, #123456).
  • Қатысушы парақшасы 10 наурызға дейін ашық болуы керек.

*Посттарды олимпиада ұйымдастырушылары былай бағалайды (жалпы ереже):

▫️1 ұпай:
— Пост жарияланған, талаптарға сай;
▫️2 ұпай:
— Мәтіні өте жақсы жазылған пост;

— интересный пост с качественно снятым и смонтированным видео;
▫️4 и 5 баллов:
— качественные посты с хорошим охватом, количеством лайков и комментариев.
