6/10/2013 - JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- A new game focused on the Air Education and Training Command's Cost Conscious Culture initiative is adding a fourth "C" to C3 - competition.

King of the Hill, an online game in which AETC members can vote for their favorite AETC C3 ideas, will debut June 10 and run for 42 days. Each day two cost-saving ideas will compete against each other for votes. At the end of the game, the voter who chooses the winning idea the most will be named King of the Hill.

"The Airmen and civilians of AETC have submitted so many great ideas since the inception of the C3 initiative and this is a great way to showcase those ideas and receive feedback," said Lt. Col. Michael Clark, AETC Command Action Group Director. "We can only get better with more participation; the more input we receive to improve the way we train, recruit and educate, the better AETC will be."

Here's how it works. Airmen and AETC civilians log into the King of the Hill site with their Common Access Card and pick their respective base from a drop down menu. The CAC login allows AETC to track individual votes and base participation. Two ideas will appear in boxes and after a quick read of the descriptions, voters can choose which idea they like the most.
The ideas will compete for 24 hours and each voter gets one vote during that time. Ideas will face double elimination, allowing them to compete at least twice. The game will track per voter, the accuracy of selecting the same ideas that end up winning each day, throughout the game. At the end of the game, the voter with the most winning votes will be named King of the Hill. Additionally, the AETC base or organization with the highest participation by percentage of its population will win the Organizational King of the Hill title.

The site also contains links to other C3 resources where Airmen can submit cost-saving ideas and read more about the initiative.

"This game is designed to spread the C3 message, share ideas and solicit feedback on those ideas. The site will also serve as an avenue for new idea submissions and a feeder to other C3 resources," Clark said. "Our main goal is awareness for the C3 initiative."

The King of the Hill game is accessible through the AETC Financial Management C3 portal or by visiting: https://www-r.aetc.af.mil/sc/c3/wp/main.asp. Voting opens June 10.

What about the person that submitted the winning ideas what do they get. Are the winning ideas going to be implemented.

Congratulations on trying something new to highlight this worthwhile program. It is outside the box thinking and if it generates more and better ideas then it is a success
Bravo to AETC, Randolph AFB

So how many man-hours are we going to waste to implement this nonsense It seems that with sequester ongoing and our civilians approaching a furlough AETC playing a game on C3 is a fradulent waste of resources and time.
