The ever popular Scooter Challenge is back again for 2019. Entering the challenge gives your school a chance to win a stunt scooter show for your school by Pro Terry Price, a Scooterpod, a voucher for a family day out in Hampshire or a brand new scooter courtesy of Nextbase Dash Cams. More than 55,000 children have taken part in the Scooter Challenge since 2012. Could it be your school’s turn to win this year?

The challenge

To get as many children as possible scooting to and from school every day from 24-28 June 2019. The schools with the highest average number of children scooting will win one of our many fantastic prizes. Everyone participating will receive a My Journey sticker and air quality pledge and each school will also receive a complementary copy of one of our new air quality-themed story books. If the chosen challenge week doesn't work for your school, you can select to run the challenge earlier in the month as long as you tell us during registration so we know to get your resources sent out early. Running it later is not possible unfortunately so we have time to send out prizes before the summer holidays.

What does school need to do?

To register your school and receive your challenge pack, please sign up today using the following registration links (Deadline for entry is Friday 24th May 2019):

REGISTRATION     

You will then be registered to go on a Scooter Safari or to Scoot Back in Time! We will then send out to you:

By email in May:

- fliers for you to use in school and to email home to parents to inform them of your participation

- an assembly to use on Clean Air Day, 20th June, to launch the Scooter Challenge to pupils the week before (or earlier if you choose to run the challenge earlier in the month)

- a toolkit of ideas for you to use to make the most of the challenge week

Through the school courier before the start of the challenge week:

stickers and an air quality pledge for every pupil and a complementary copy of one of our new air quality story books: 'A Wild Walk to School' and 'A Right Royal Adventure'. 

Recording  your challenge results

All you need to do is ask each class teacher to record the number of children in their class who scooted to school each morning of the challenge (or who came by bike - 2 wheels are better than 4) - or you can do this yourself on the playground each morning if you prefer. We don't need to know names this year - just numbers :-) Then click on the results link we will send out to you to submit your results and wait to see if you have won. Simple!

Winners will be announced in July. Good luck everyone!
