What is the Walk+Bike Challenge?
The BTA's Walk + Bike Challenge is a friendly competition among Oregon elementary and middle schools aimed at encouraging more kids and families to use active transportation to travel to and from school and throughout the neighborhood. School coordinators track the number of students biking, walking, and skating to school throughout the month. At the end of the Challenge, prizes go to the schools that log the most biking trips, the most walking trips, largest total number of students walking and biking, and highest percentage of students (out of the total school population) walking and biking. Winning schools will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Portland (TBA).
Is it free?
Who can register a school?
Parents, teachers, principals, volunteers, health and physical education program coordinators, district officials -- anyone who wants to promote walking and biking at your school.
What does a registered school receive?
The first 150 schools to register will receive a FREE package of incentives including stickers, temporary tattoos, and award ribbons to help encourage participation. Every school that registers will receive a coordinator packet with tips and resources for promoting the event, organizing parent volunteers, procuring local prizes, and tracking trips.
What does a coordinator do?
As a coordinator, you get your school community excited about walking and biking during the Challenge. You might need to recruit volunteesr to help you promote the event and plan activities. During the month of May, you keep track of how many students walk, bike, or use other active transportation to get to school. You can log your school's trips each week, or submit your final results at the end of the month using our online trip calendar.
We look forward to the best Challenge ever!
