You’ve all heard about it. Some of you got the first taste of it at our Pre-Vappu Sitsfest. Soon it’s here… VAPPU!!! The ultimate nationwide festival of all the students in Finland, and you DON’T want to miss it! Vappu is when students celebrate the most during the whole year!
ESN JKL is very excited to introduce this traditional spring festivity to you too, so continue reading to know what this Vappu Challenge is about!
When celebrating Vappu, the Church Park is the place to be, so we'll start and finish the event there. You will compete against each other in teams of 4-6 people. You can form the team with your friends in advance or find yourself one on the spot if you don't have one beforehand. At 3PM your team will be handed a task pass, and you will have 3 hours to fulfill the fun Vappu-themed tasks presented in the pass. You will be required to prove your performances publishing them on the page of this Facebook event or on Instagram using the official hashtag #esnjklvappu19. The jury (ESNers) will be monitoring these performances through social media. The Challenge ends at 6PM when you will be expected to return your task passes. The best team will be rewarded in Church Park.
Participation is free of charge, but bring your own refreshments. After the Challenge, you’re all free and welcome to stay and continue the celebration in the Church Park with us and hundreds of other students.
