Here are the opening-week standings to our 2017 AtmoCup!

Drum roll please….

  1. San Jose State – 1 point
  2. Everybody else – 0 points


Is it obvious that our competition began just this week? Well, don’t worry too hard. You’ll start seeing some sexy totals up there as we update this weekly until the finish at the end of June.

In the meantime, there are a few very simple ways in which you can earn AtmoCup points for your school RIGHT NOW.

Storm Spotting

Tweet us (@atmolife) your photos/videos of extreme weather you encounter during this AtmoCup season, and you can “claim” it for your school. Below is our list of meteorological phenomena and their corresponding points. We also hear there’s a pretty big ice storm expected in the next couple days. If your home gets some nice accretion, you can get your school on the board. (Please don’t go driving around to seek this out though.)

Instagram contest

As previously mentioned in our Weekly Siren Test, you can earn AtmoCup points and a free AtmoLife koozie by tagging our Instagram account (atmolife) in your photo/video that fits the criteria of our weekly challenge.

This week’s challenge: Post and tag us in a photo/video of someone being completely incapable of handling winter. Deadline for submissions is 12Z Monday. Below is our example.


Good Tweetin’ / Random bonus points

This is how San Jose State earned a point already.

We award good tweets and random bonus points at our own discretion, so keep your twitter game sharp and you might get lucky.
