For every lab you refer to sign up you'll receive one extra bonus point in the Challenge. Remember to tell your friends, colleagues, and future competitors that they have to put the name of the lab that referred them on their sign-up form for you to receive credit. And of course they have to submit a score sheet by May 1st.
