    The OK In the Know Achievements Challenge is back for the month of September to give OK In the Know members a new way to be rewarded for using the site to collaborate and learn! The theme for the month is “public health hacks,” so share your best tips, and read on to check out NEW ways to be recognized for participating in Groups and helping out your peers in the Forum.

    Scroll to the end to see who made the top 10 this week and who was named the Rockstar Collaborator, taking home a bonus of 50 points toward their score in the Challenge!

    Points and achievements can be earned in many other ways, including logging in, browsing the site, starting a conversation in the Forum, and replying to others’ posts.

    What is the Achievements Challenge?

    The OK In the Know team will track points earned by every user for the month of September. At the end, we’ll announce the winners who earned the most points as the Achievers of the Month.

    The winners will be solely determined by the number of points earned from September 1-30; points accumulated prior to September 1 do not count toward the total. However, the existing Achievements Leaderboard  will continue to track overall earnings over time.

    How Does it Work?

    You earn points by logging in and using the site. Over time, these activities add up, and you can earn extra points by reaching certain benchmarks, or achievements.

    Each achievement is assigned a certain number of points, which can be seen here on the Achievements Menu. There, you can also see which achievements you’ve earned so far.

    Introducing NEW Achievements

    To make this month’s challenge even more rewarding, there are new ways to earn achievements on OK In the Know. For this month only, be crowned a Rockstar Collaborator by posting especially useful advice, inspiring success stories, and more!

    Additionally, gain new achievements for engaging with groups from here on out.
