AXN University Challenge: Amplified event details
AXN University Challenge: Amplified will be held on September 5, Friday at the UP Sunken Garden from 8am – 6pm.
The full day event will welcome 60 teams of five members each. The first phase Battle Obstacle will see teams overcome six physical challenges like jumping across gaps, collecting tokens while being rolled like a hamster in a wheel and unlocking locks picking from a bunch of keys. With the goal of clocking the shortest possible time, the top 10 team will get through to the final phase, Campus Rush.
Each of the 10 team selects two members for Campus Rush, which will involve tasks to be completed in various parts of the UP campus. Tasks will include moving tokens using only a stick in the mouth, solving mathematical and jigsaw puzzles, eating pastries, as well as learning and performing a cheer-dance routine.
Based on the results of both phases, the fastest team wins PhP20,000, runners-up takes home PhP15,000, and second runners-up receives PhP10,000, with the school organization of the winning team also bagging PhP20,000.
