Golden Sneaker Contest Kickoff
Mon, Mar 4 8:00am-8:20am
Edison Elementary

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 Edison Elementary!

From March 4th to March 15th, students will work together to reduce car trips by using active and shared transportation options such as:

  • Walking
  • Biking
  • Skateboarding, using a scooter, or any other human-powered wheels
  • Carpooling with other families

The Golden Sneaker Contest is an opportunity for our students to be physically active, build camaraderie, and reduce traffic congestion and pollution in our school community.

If you live too far from school to walk or roll, you can:

  • Park two+ blocks away and walk - make sure to let your kiddo know this counts as walking!
  • Meet up with friends who live close to school and walk or roll as a group
  • Start a carpool, walking school bus or bike train

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, golden shoelaces and a celebration.
