In support of National Walk to School Week, Medway Council are offering all schools in Medway the chance to compete in our NEW competition called the Walkin’ N Wheelin’ Challenge. The campaign aims to inspire active travel over the 5-day event, and hopefully thereafter.
How does the competition work?
Classes will need to conduct a simple hands-up survey each day to determine how many pupils have journeyed to school via active travel. Active travel refers to: walking, wheeling, cycling, scooting and park-and-stride (walking the last 10 minutes of your journey). To encourage pupils to become more involved, you could nominate ‘campaign ambassadors’ to conduct the survey!
Winners will be recognised in both primary and secondary school categories. The schools that tally the highest percentage of active travel journeys over the 5-day event will win the coveted title.
How to sign-up?
All you need to do is complete and email the Walkin’ N Wheelin’ registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org before the start date of the competition, which is 15 May 2023.
A copy of the registration form can be found attached, or on our competition webpage: www.medway.gov.uk/WalkToSchool
Once your registration form has been received, you will have access to our FREE Walkin’ N Wheelin’ e-resources to help run the campaign. These include: bespoke promotional banners, posters, results log, wordsearch and scavenger hunt.
Medway Council are encouraging ALL schools to sign-up and be apart of this fantastic walk to school week campaign.
