Clean Air Scooter Challenge

The Clean Air Scooter Challenge 2024 will take place from Monday 17 June to Friday 21 June to support National Clean Air Day.

The event, provides schools with a great opportunity to encourage their pupils to scoot and have 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.

 


Registration

Hampshire primary schools can sign up to receive resources and competition details by email. Please register by Wednesday 12 June 2024.

The challenge

All registered schools will be provided with resources to encourage as many pupils as possible to scoot and travel actively throughout the week. This could include scooting to school, Scoot from the Boot or finding opportunities, in and out of school, to scoot. As the challenge week encompasses Clean Air Day there is a focus on air quality and the benefits of scooting and active travel.

 


School competition

For this year's 'Scooter Scrapbook' competition, schools are being asked to encourage pupils to scoot as much as possible through promotion and scooting initiatives. For example, your school could use the Scooter Challenge assembly to launch the event, promote scooting in the schools communications or get a group of pupils to hold a scooter poster competition. We have provided a list of suggested activities below, but this is by no means an exhaustive list, so please be as creative as you like!

Scooter Scrapbook competition list of activities

At the end of the week, schools will use a template to create their 'Scooter Scrapbook'. The scrapbook can include a summary of the week, photos, screenshots, weblinks or quotes showcasing the school's scooting activity throughout the week.

There are some fantastic prizes to be won! The winning school can choose from a Scooterpod, a set of scooters with helmets or scooter training equipment. There will also be a choice of runner-up prizes including scooter locks or a scooter with a helmet.
