ASSIGNED TO LEAD

Each lecture and workshop is accompanied with a specific assignment that AmChamps teams will be asked to work on before, during or after the event. Assignemnets are assessed with up to 6 points each, by lecturers and trainers provided with clear guidelines and assessment criteria.

WE VALUE IDEAS

AmCham is a place where new solutions are constantly developed and constructive conversations are kick-started. That is why we greatly value the voice of the next generation of young leaders.

By the end of the regular part of the program, all 20 AmChamps teams will be invited to present their project regarding the design of a new AmCham format or activity or development of an existing one. AmCham Executive Team will award each of these projects with up to 12 points, while the best 3 teams will be given an oppoirnity to present their projects to the AmCham Board of Governors.

WRITING IS SHARING

AmChamps pairs can collect points by volunteering to write short news articles on up to three topics from the program curriculum. By submitting each article they collect 2 points, while those that provide the best one will be awarded with additional 3 points.

Articles are written by students, under the supervision of their AmChamps mentors, and are examined by program lecturers.

ATTEND TO SUCCEED

Another great way to gain points during the competiotion is by being actively present on lectures and workshops. Aside from the opportunity to interact and share ideas with top level professionals and their peers, at these events each AmChamps team can collect up to 10 points - 1 point per lecture/workshop.

Extracurricular activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom and are important part of a well-rounded education.By attending them on a regular basis, participants can collect maximum 12 points - 1 point per pair single activity, while two team building activities carry a total of 6 points (3 points for each team building).
