Why is Helga’s 8 Day May Day organized?
How can one participate in Helga’s 8 Day May Day?
You can participate in the event by redeeming a Wappu pass and attending various May Day events with it. Every event is marked on the Wappu pass and when participating in the event, the student asks for a stamp on their Wappu pass to mark their participation. With 6 stamps collected, the student can redeem a Wappu coverall patch 1.5. from Helga’s checkpoint. There are 4 coverall patches based on different years of performance. The coverall patches consist of one large ensemble to the coveralls. Students who collect the stamp of each event in their Wappu pass will be awarded with the Wappu diploma.
Some events are free and some may incur additional charges. Helga’s Coverall Baptism and the May Day in May 1st, as well as Helga’s 8 Day Wappu coverall patch belong to Wappu pass. What comes to the actual student associations day’s, the event may be free and the event’s coverall patch paid, or the event may be fully chargeable.
