While AHA encourages schools to host Walk to School and Bike to School Day events, this award is reserved for schools with outstanding and ongoing walking and/or biking programs in which students are physically active getting to school on a regular basis. (AHA also considers “at school” programs for this award.)
Schools are advised to review the application early in the school year and then complete the online application in April 2017.
NOTE: The Sneakers and Spokes Award is independent of the AHA Brains and Bodies Award. Schools may be awarded the Sneakers and Spokes Award even if they do not apply for the Brains and Bodies Award or if they do not win a Brains and Bodies Award.
