SWE section creates or participates in educational, outreach and volunteering events in the community where members are able to sign-up to volunteer.
It’s as easy as 2 SWE members volunteering at the local food bank or animal shelter!! So go out, volunteer and have fun while you are doing it.
The events must be submitted to the s2schallenge.com website with relevant information (Event sign-in sheet, Photo/Media Release Form, video, pictures or media files).
Once the event is created and submitted on our website, a Schlumberger representative will verify the validity of the event and approve the event. Events must consist of an educational, outreach or community volunteer opportunity and have a minimum of 2 volunteers per event.
Once an event is approved, it will be posted on our website under your university’s SWE section. There is a two event minimum to qualify for awards. SWE sections can be considered for bonus prizes for the Best Video / Media content, Social Impact Event Performance, and Most Approved Events. These additional prize recipients will be determined by a Schlumberger panel.
- Bronze ( 2 -4 Events) = $ 600
- Silver ( 5 – 7 Events ) = $ 1500
- Gold ( 8 – 10 Events) = $ 2500
- Platinum ( 11 + events) = $ 4000
- Best Video / Media Content = $ 1000
- Best Social Impact Event Performance = $ 1000
- Most Events = $1000
