- TEAM SIZE: Number of babies in the team or census
- SESSIONS DURATION: Total duration of kangaroo care in minutes
- NUMBER OF SESSIONS: Total number of kangaroo care sessions
- BABIES HELD: Number of babies held in kangaroo care
WHO WINS? :

- Longest sessions: SESSIONS DURATION divided by BABIES HELD
- Most babies held: BABIES HELD divided by TEAM SIZE
- Number of Teams
- Total Babies Participating: Add TEAM SIZE
- Duration of Kangaroo Care: add SESSIONS DURATION
- Total Number of Sessions: Add all NUMBER OF SESSIONS
- Total Babies held in Kangaroo Care: Add BABIES HELD
Every team will receive a participation certificate via email, giving fabulous bragging rights.
