27 Skyscrapers for Life Awads Criteria Property Management Group of the Year The award for “Property Management Group of the Year” is the biggest prize of the competition, and is physically the largest of all those given. The winner in this category will be determined by totaling the aggregate number of pints given in all participating buildings of a property management group. Property of the Year The award for “Property of the Year” goes to the property that produces the most pints of blood. The award will be determined by total pints donated during the period of the competition. The physical award given for this category is larger than those given for the three categories below, but not as prominent as that of “Property Management Group of the Year.” Best New Property The award for “Best New Property” will go to a property that runs a drive for the first time in at least five years, or for the first time after changing management companies/owners. The winner of this category will be determined based on total number of pints given during the period of the competition. Greatest Increase The award for “Greatest Increase” will go to the property that achieves the largest growth in pints when compared to the same period in the prior year. This will be determined by growth in total pints during the period of the competition. Highest Average Pints The award for “Highest Average Pints” will go to the building which yields the highest average number of pints for a single day drive. The winner will be determined by dividing the total number of pints during the period of the competition by the total number of days upon which blood drives were held. For example, if one building’s total for the competition year is 200 pints, and those drives were conducted over 5 days, the average at that property is 40 pints/drive.
