I'm hosting a W30 competition, need ideas for winner

I have fallen in love with W30 and believe in its power to change lives so much that I have decided to host a W30 Challenge through my bikini waxing business Bikini Underground. I have a client list of 500 so I want to send out a mass email newsletter with links to all pertinent information along with my own success story to encourage my clients to try it out for themselves. I'm planning to offer a $300 gift certificate as the Grand Prize and I'll probably do a $30 gift certificate for everyone who completes the 30 days.

I have read a little about other W30 competitions where the winner is typically determined by weight loss or body fat percentage lost. But I've also read about the extreme disappointment when people aren't recognized for other markers of W30 success. And since the point of W30 isn't really weight loss anyways I want to crown my winner based on all those other markers. I am thinking of coming up with a scoring system for getting points in all the w9 principles as well as most dramatic before/after, weight loss etc. obviously there will be some subjectivity involved but I'd love some input how to make it fair.

Also input as to if its just a lame/bad idea altogether would also be welcome!

Hit me with your best ideas!!

I have three immediate thoughts.

1. I had no idea there were challenges until I saw some challenge winners on the Whole9 FB page today. Interesting.

2. Food porn. I think it would be fun to evaluate photo submissions of their food based on aesthetics, variety, creativity, etc. I am thinking of a TV show that you may not watch called Chopped and my own attempt to keep the variety in my own Whole30 based on the shopping list.

3. I'd use at least a couple indicators from each section of this list as part of the eval: http://whole9life.com/2012/08/new-health-scale/ Maybe peeps can submit a little before journal after reading the list and an after journal.

Good luck! I love the idea, but I'm happy not to be the one running it.

(Ooh, number of comment likes on the forum could be considered as a tie breaker.)

As a lifelong student, I might try to use a rubric or likert scale to try to quantify change. We have different starting points and paces of healing, so the before and after comparisons of subjective factors need to be quantified in some way.

Want me to send you examples?

One is basically a scale...1 to 5 or some other odd number.

The other is similar but it tells why. You create it based on the factors you want to evaluate and compare their results to the rubric and then you will also get a number. Typically, there are four or five categories and about 5 points for each category. If you exceeded in all categories, you would get 20 to 25 points.

Maybe I should send examples. ;)

Actually, I just found a few on Google. I searched for each and found a lot of samples under images. Does that help? I have some syllabii, that have examples of rubrics, but really technical, and I have created a few questionnaires using Likert-type scales.
