Community badge (yhteisömerkki)
The community badge is granted to a current member of the association who has held positions of responsibility at KY or KY associations during their studies. It is awarded purely by collected points. The community badge is awarded annually to a maximum of 100 people, who have not yet been awarded with the badge and have collected the largest total amount of points.
Activity badge (aktiivimerkki)
The activity badge is granted to a current member of the association who has been active at KY or KY associations during their studies. It is awarded purely by collected points. If you receive an activity badge after receiving the community badge, it will replace the latter. The activity badge is awarded annualy to a maximum of 35 people, who have not yet been awarded with the badge and have collected the largest total amount of points.
The points for both badges are calculated in the following manner:
1,5 points: KY Office, student board members and Chair of KY Foundation, active members of the Representative Council, the chairman of Kylterirengas, sub-committee boards, committee members, Probba board + the chairmen of project teams, subject clubs and clubs
1 point: tutors, active members of sub-committees, the editorial staff of Kylteri, subject clubs, active club members and project teams
In 2017, tutoring and the editorial staff of Kylteri were included for the first time. Beginning from 2018 also activity in clubs will be included. Because of the demanding nature of data collecting, the information is not collected retroactively.
Badge of dedication (harrastusmerkki)
The badge of dedication is granted by the KY Board to a current or former member of the association who has held multiple positions of large responsibility at KY or KY associations during their studies over multiple years.
Badge of dedication is granted to people who already hold an activity badge and have shown excellent quality of work during their activities.
