Presidential Champions Program Overview
Points based, ongoing
The goal for participants is to see how many points they can earn by staying active. Points are based on the amount of energy each activity burns. So the more active students are, the more points they’ll get.
The Presidential Champions program lets participants choose all kinds of activities they like doing – whether it’s at school, home, camp, Welcome Center, alone or with friends and family. Participants who are already active at least 60 minutes a day can still find new challenges.
Examples of Presidential Champions personal goals:
- I will earn 2,000 points this week paddling every day after school.
- I will increase my activity level by 5 minutes each day until I earn 500 points a day.
- Each week, I will spend 2 days practicing a new activity I want to learn.
