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.

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)

  • Қатысушы парақшасы 10 наурызға дейін ашық болуы керек.

*Посттарды олимпиада ұйымдастырушылары былай бағалайды (жалпы ереже):
