This year we are opening the Way to Go! Transportation Challenge to all Vermonters!

Battle Pollution through better transportation habits on your way to school, commute to work, or in your daily life.

 

Anyone can participate in the Way to Go! Challenge as part of specific events throughout the year. Adults 18-and-older can track their transportation trips through the Go! Vermont App. Stay tuned for upcoming events open to all.

Upcoming Events

February 1st -12th - Winter Walk & Bike School Event
February 12th - National Winter Walk to Work Day
February 10th - VT Winter Walk to School Day
May 1st - 16th - Statewide Spring Challenge

Past Events

October 5th - 16th - Way to Go! Fall School Challenge


February 1st-12th is the Winter Walk & Bike School Event!

Any school that pledges to participate in this challenge will receive a pack of fun mini-erasers to incentivize student participation in your event. We will provide enough for each child in your school.

Once you record your event, you will be entered to win:

One of three pairs of ski passes to a ski resort local to you

OR

Ten pairs of Darn Tough socks!  

Getting active and outside is so important to students’ health and wellbeing (yours as well!).  This challenge provides the perfect excuse to motivate your students to get outside and PLAY.  While we will always give credit for a traditional Winter Walk/Bike to School event, this year we’re offering credit for remote and alternative walking/biking events.  This year, any event where you got kids outside, exploring their neighborhoods, or even just moving meaningfully, will count.  

Pledge to participate in a Winter Walk/Bike Event here: Winter Walk/Bike Event Pledge Form

Thank you to the 25 schools who have pledged to participate!  We look forward to seeing your submissions!

We’ve compiled a starting list of some ideas for remote Winter Walk events here!
