STARS - Recognition and Rewards
**PLEASE NOTE: THE PROCESS FOR THE 2017-18 ACADEMIC YEAR WILL NOT BE UPDATED UNTIL JANURARY. THE BELOW INFORMATION SHOULD BE USED FOR GUIDANCE ONLY**
STARS POINTS BASED REWARDS 2016-17
We operate a tiered system to reward our societies and incentivise them to achieve more throughout the year. Our societies must achieve Bronze status to be an affiliated society (they do this through completing their basic training and compulsory paperwork), but many choose to push on to Silver or Gold status. They can do this through our Points system.
We have produced several documents to help you understand this system, which are explained below:
The Guidance Document tells you a bit about why we have done this, what the incentives are for taking part in the system and shows the points available.
STARS Points Guidance Document 2016/17 (PDF) - updated version will be available later.
At certain points in the year (the first will begin in December for all groups) we will send out a link to allow societies to claim their points by filling out an online form, through the JotForm website. The Screenshots document shows you what this form looks like, so you know what to expect. The JotForm document can part-completed then returned to at some point within a 4 week period, in case you only wish to fill out part of the form initially.

We have a document that solely shows the points available under the 2016-17, which can be accessed below. There is one for University Park/Jubilee societies, and one for Sutton Bonington societies/sport societies. This information will be updated at a later date for the 2017-18 academic year.

Please note the changes for this year, such as the different Points totals required, and the increased number of Training sessions required for University Park / Jubilee societies.
This scheme will be used to determine who achieves Gold and Silver status (as long as Silver training is completed), along with influencing the judging for Societies Awards. Gold societies receive several benefits that non-Gold societies do not, including a 10% discount on stash orders through Red Oak Roller. More incentives for Gold will be released during the academic year.
Each event can only be used to claim one set of points - so, for example, a trip to London for 100 students could be used to claim points for 'Trip' or for 'Society Event' - not both!
Events must have happened by the time you claim for them - you cannot claim for events that have not yet happened!
SUBMIT POINTS FOR YOUR SOCIETY:
Groups will be able to submit points during two Points windows at dates to be determined later.
