Beanstack FAQs

What is a badge?
Badges are rewards given to the reader after completing a reading goal or activity.

What are activities?
Activities are another way to participate in challenges. Activities can be anything from attending a library program to doing a random act of kindness. Completing activities can also help you earn badges.

What are tickets?
Some challenges include tickets and prizes. Tickets are virtual entries into prize drawings. These allow you to select which prize drawings you want to be entered into. You can put all your tickets towards one prize or spread them out however you wish!

How do I get prizes in Beanstack?
It depends on the challenge! Sometimes the challenge will require completion of a row, column, or diagonal of five squares on a challenge card. Other times, it just requires completion of a certain number of minutes or activities. Be sure to read the requirements of the challenge you join in the overview.
