What is the Virtual Golden Sneaker Contest?

The Virtual Golden Sneaker Contest is a week-long classroom competition that encourages students, parents, teachers and administrators to take the healthy modes of active and shared transportation options, such as:

  • Walking
  • Biking
  • Rolling in a wheelchair or mobility device
  • Skateboarding or using a scooter or any other human-powered wheels
  • Carpooling with other families at your school, or
  • Riding public transit like AC Transit or BART

How Does the Virtual Golden Sneaker Contest Work?

Students and teachers in each class keep track of their active and shared travel from the day before with a simple digital tally chart. At the end of the week, the class with the highest percentage of participation will receive participant incentives!
