Start Earning Awards Today with the New and Improved SparkTrophies

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, December 01, 2009



Good morning SparkPeople!

Today we launched a new feature: SparkTrophies. Previously, members could earn trophies by accumulating SparkPoints. Beginning today, members can earn a variety of trophies for reaching new milestones such as SparkVersaries (your anniversary of joining the site), being a Trivia leader, and losing weight! Here's a list of the new motivational trophies you can earn on the site:

  • Spread the Spark* Awarded for referring at least 5 people to SparkPeople in a month (only given once a month)
  • Fitness minutes* Awarded for logging at least 1,000 fitness minutes in a month (only given once a month)
  • SparkPoints* Awarded for earning at least 500 SparkPoints in a month (only given once a month)
  • SparkPeople Trivia leader Awarded for answering at least 30 trivia questions and getting at least 90% correct
  • Consistency Awarded for spinning the SparkPoints wheel during the month. There are two levels for this award: one for spinning at least 20 times/month and another for spinning every day of the month
  • Popular blog post Awarded when one of your blog posts becomes "popular" due to other members' votes (see a list of popular blog posts)
  • Weight loss Select your own trophy based on your weight loss progress
  • SparkVersary Select your own trophy to celebrate when you joined SparkPeople
  • Community Team Awarded for joining the Community Team

*These trophies are given at the beginning of each month for the previous month's accomplishments.

Trophies will be displayed on your SparkPage and you'll be notified by email each time you earn a new trophy. To learn more about how SparkTrophies work, please read this article.

We hope you enjoy earning SparkTrophies and find them to be fun and motivational as you continue on your healthy lifestyle adventure!

    I love the trophies! I love the sparkchallenges with the articles and the checkboxes and steps like in 28day bootcamp, family makeover, sleep, etc. They made a huge difference in my weight loss.

    I've seen "Creating a New Me" icon on people's pages or as their profile pic. What is this - an award? How does one get it?

    I had well over 500 Spark Points in July, but did not receive the 500 Spark Points Trophy . . . also, I spun the Spark Points Wheel at least 20 times (perhaps everyday of the month) and I didn't get the consistency trophy either . . . I know, no big deal right? However, it's like everyone is saying, these small rewards for doing SP make a big difference in staying motivated!!

    It seems silly for a 55-year-old woman to get excited about an online trophy but I was really excited yesterday when I realized I had over 500 SparkPoints. Whatever makes this process more fun is great with me! Now I need to create a SparkPage so I can see it!

    Question for anyone who can answer; On my sparkpage, in the trophies section, some of my trophies have disappeared and there is only text, can anyone advise me what happened or is there a limit on the number of trophies displayed.

    I think the trophies are cool! A great way to get motivated, and to make other markers of success than only that tricky little number on the scale.

What is the Perfect Attendance trophy? I've noticed people getting it, but don't see it here and it doesn't turn up on a sparkpeople web search.

    I agree with Lotus Flower - we need a 3-year Sparkiversary trophy! Some of oldtimers could use a little extra motivation, ya know!

    Will there be a 3 yr. SparkVersary added to select from? It will be my 3 yr. at the end of this month and I would love to add it to my page. I've seen the small emoticon with that, but not the trophy. It only goes up to 2. Thanks!!

    It's so cool to get a new trophy, but I liked the S, is there a way to add choice when we reach a new point category?

  I like the new reward system. Will be fun and motivating. I know this is silly, but is there any way we can switch back to the old LOOK of the trophies? I thought they were prettier before and was motivated by the almost trivial pursuit color gain pattern.

    It would be great if you were awarded the 500 points for a month trophy when it happened rather than just at the end of the month. If someone makes 500 by the 15th the next month they could shoot for the 14th etc. Or add in 1000 point trophies, 1500, 2000, etc. : )

  I was noticing how when I was approaching a SparkPoints trophy that this helped motivate me to be more consistent. It occurred to me that after I hit 60,000 I won't have another trophy to shoot for. This gives us a lot more things to work toward.
