The process of how to win:
1 ballot for every 5,000 Pineapple Juice points earned. Take your time to complete quizzes to the best of your ability. The more answers you get correct, the higher your chances of obtaining more ballots.
All variety of learning available: products (from tools to self-development) (1 ballot for each product). In Pineapple Juice, we segment our understanding by-products, otherwise referred to as learning categories. Each category is defined by the trail/ module badges you see. Please note: Multiple trials can fall under the same type of learning. Trails can also earn you more than 1 ballot. You will gain a ballot for each category, NOT each trail completed. For example, Pineapple Essentials has development Sales & Marketing badges, so you can earn 2 ballots with this trail.
1 ballot for every 5 modules completed in Pineapple Juice. #ElevateYourHorizons
