What is the Golden Sneaker Contest?

The Golden Sneaker Contest is a two-week classroom competition that encourages students, parents, teachers and administrators to take the healthy route to school by choosing active or shared transportation options such as:

  • Walking
  • Biking
  • Skateboarding, or any other human-powered wheels!
  • Carpooling with other families at your school, or
  • Riding public transit — like the bus or BART

How Does the Golden Sneaker Contest Work?

Students in each class keep track of their active and shared travel to school each day with a simple tally chart. At the end of the two weeks, the class with the highest percentage of class participation will receive the Golden Sneaker Award — a trophy made from shoes donated by the Golden State Warriors — and a classroom prize.
