Golden Sneaker Contest
Lace up those shoes, dust off those bikes, or get ready to share your ride! The Safe Routes to Schools Golden Sneaker Contest is coming to your school.
From February 24 to March 6, students will work together to reduce car trips by using active and shared transportation options such as:
Skateboarding, using a scooter, or any other human-powered wheels
Riding the school bus
Using public transit such as AC Transit or BART
Carpooling with other families
The Golden Sneaker Contest offers a chance for every student to participate. If you live too far from school to walk or roll, you can:
Park a few blocks away and walk
Meet up with friends who live close to school and walk or roll as a group
Start a carpool
Take the school bus or public transit to school
Students will track how they get to school each day. The classroom with the highest percentage of these healthy travel choices will win a Golden Sneaker Trophy and golden shoelaces.
