School Cup Overview
Time for another School Cup event! The School Cup is a competition that all Clubs take part in. There are two main parts of the School Cup—the Costume Contests and the Club Contests. The winners from those events will have their points contributed to their Clubs. The Clubs with the most points at the end of the month are the winners!
Information on the School Cup is also available to players in-game in the latest edition of the Newspaper. This is accessible through the Newspaper Archive in the Newspaper Office or Library.
There will be a weekly Costume Contest held in the Marketplace Plaza from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PT) (that's 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (ET); check your timezone!).
Participants of the Costume Contests do not need to stay in the plaza the entire time. As long as they show up within the time frame, our (secret) judges will take note of their outfit. The winners will receive a prize and contribute points to their Club!
The Costume Contests include the following:
- Founder's Day - September 9, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PT) in the Marketplace Plaza
- How do you think you would've dressed in the time of the Founders?
- Pirate Day - September 16, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (PT) in the Marketplace Plaza

How does credit work for the books my Club and I have read for the Book Contest?
Club members will receive credit for reading unique books. If multiple members of a club read the same book it will be counted as one book read, not x amount of books. If a user reads the same book multiple times, it will also count as one book.
Why haven't I received my reward? My Club was announced as a winner during the Friday results.
Rewards will be issued at the end of the School Cup, and winners will be announced in next month's Newspaper.
How do I know what science activities count towards the Science Contest?
All activities labeled as "science activities" will qualify.
If I complete a science activity that I've already received maximum XP for, will that qualify towards the Science Contest?
Yes, as long as you complete the activity during the Science Contest.
When and where can I find the contest results?
The weekly winners will be announced every Friday, and the final winners will be announced in next month's Newspaper! Good luck!
