Over the 2nd term, Aberystwyth Student’s Union has organised a seven-week long Super Challenge series, which was aimed at engaging students in competitive activities. Due to COVID restrictions the event was an alternative, amalgamated version of the much loved Superteams and AberChallenge. Members of the student body were invited to take part in multiple challenges, trying their abilities and competing with one another. Each week seen two new activities, with winners receiving a voucher prize to a range of local and national businesses.
Types of competitions varied and included challenges of both skill and creativity. Our students participated in sports challenges, bake off, virtual games, scavenger hunts, and video creation assignments. Many of the events encouraged students to participate with friends, family and housemates; as well as encouraging them to explore their local area and get to know Aberystwyth in a greater depth.
We would like to thank all the participants for the great engagement and motivation. Below we are presenting the 1st place winners of each challenge:
