Clean Air Scooter Challenge

Clean Air Scooter Challenge

The Clean Air Scooter Challenge is back for 2022, providing schools with a great opportunity to encourage their pupils to scoot to school and the chance to win some great prizes.

Why scoot? Why not?! Scooting is fun and great exercise. Plus, for those who live too far to scoot all the way to school, scooters are compact enough to fit in the car. This allows parents to park 5-10 minutes away from the school site so children can scoot from the boot.


The Challenge

This year's Clean Air Scooter Challenge will take place from 13th to 17th June 2022.

Once registered, your school will be provided with the resources needed to encourage as many pupils as possible to scoot and travel actively to school every day. As the challenge week encompasses Clean Air Day these resources will focus on air quality and active travel on the school run. Visit Clean Air Day for more information about the event on Thursday 16 June 2022 which is open to KS2 and KS3 pupils.


The Competition

At the end of the week, the schools with the highest average number of children scooting to school will win some amazing active travel prizes including Scooterpods and scooters. They will also receive vouchers for family days out in Hampshire for their pupils to win.
