Active Transportation Month Contest

Oct 1, 2021

October is Active Transportation month and to celebrate we've partnered with Active Schools NL to challenge our member schools to get their students out and actively transporting themselves to school.

A custom 9-slot bike rack for your school! Plus, all participating students can receive a special Active Transportation Month participant sticker (while supplies last).

The entire population of a school is encouraged to get to school in an active way - whether that's walking, biking or cartwheeling, if they're moving their bodies to get there, it counts!

--> For every student that actively transports themselves to school, the school receives one point, per student, per day.
--> For students who require bussing, schools can still receive one point, per student, per day if those students participate in 20 minutes of physical activity at lunchtime.

At the end of each week in October, homeroom teachers will tally up the total points for the week and submit them through our google form. The school with the highest percentage of participation per capita, will win the grand prize.

IMPORTANT: To qualify for the grand prize, at least 50% of a school's homeroom classes MUST participate in the initiative over the course of the month.
--> WHAT THIS MEANS: If a school has 10 homeroom classes in total, at least 1 person in 5 of those classes will need to participate at least once during the month. Meaning, we'll need to see google forms submitted by at least 5 different homeroom teachers over the course of October.
--> NOTE: If your school has an odd number of classes (ex: 15 in total), you'll need to round up to the next number (ex: 8 classes), to qualify.

There are 2 days in October where your school can earn bonus points. Earn 5 points when your school shares a photo on Twitter mentioning @schoolsportsnl with the #SSNLContest OR via email to Natelle ( Be sure to include your school's name so we know where to reward the bonus points.

--> October 6 - International Walk to School Day (max of 5 bonus points per school)
--> October 20 - Take Me Outside Day (max of 5 bonus points per school)
--> IMPORTANT: You DO NOT need to include your bonus points as part of your point tally for that week. SSNL will add the bonus points for you when we receive your school's photo.

Stickers are available to all participating schools while supplies last, so please order early to avoid disappointment. Place your order through Diana ( specifying your name, school, school address and requested quantity. The deadline to order is October 8th.

All points must be tallied and submitted by end of day Monday, November 1st. The grand prize winning school will be announced Thursday, November 4th.
