If your school hosted any kind of celebration for International Walk to School Month (IWALK) in October, you are eligible to win the IWALK Challenge.  Schools may be public or private, serving students of any ages from pre-K through high school.  Events may be single-day events, month-long campaigns, or anything in between.

Submissions accepted NOW through November 9th

Download our submission form and complete it by writing a brief description of your event. Choose at least one photograph (JPG, GIF) of the event to submit with the form. Send your completed form and photo(s) to jen@feetfirst.org no later than 5:00 PM on Friday, November 9th.  

More about the Prizes

The following prizes will be awarded to the IWALK Challenge winners:

  1. Shoes for a Classroom:  35 pairs of Brooks athletic shoes in various children’s sizes
  2. IWALK Champion:  A $250 gift certificate to USGAMES.com to purchase active play equipment for your school’s PE classroom
  3. Strong First IWALK:  A $125 gift certificate to USGAMES.com for a school celebrating IWALK for the first time.
Please note that first-time schools will be considered for all prizes, not just the “Strong First IWALK” prize.  

How are the Prize Winners Selected?

Prize winners will be chosen by our IWALK Celebrity Panel of Judges, who will be looking for the best account of an event with distinction in any or all of the following ways:  

  • a fun theme or other show of creativity
  • high participation rates
  • evidence of having overcome barriers to achieve success
Please note that free-or-reduced lunch rates will be considered when awarding the “Shoes for a Classroom” prize.
 

Register on the National IWALK Website

Please check the national IWALK website to see that every school you are working with is registered there.  This website is separate from the IWALK Challenge, but it is still very helpful for our state to have as many schools listed here as possible.  Please take this small step to pitch in to our collective sense of momentum and accomplishment.  Thank you!
