Alameda County kids compete for Golden Sneaker

Submitted By Tess Lengyel

Students from 40 schools in Alameda County will walk, bike and carpool as much as possible for two weeks, starting March 12, 2012, to win the "Pollution Solution Golden Sneaker Contest" as part of the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools Program. The contest encourages families to be more active and reduce pollution. Families that live too far away to walk or bike to school can still participate in the contest by parking several blocks away and walking to school together.

At the end of the two-week contest, the winning classroom in each school will receive the coveted Golden Sneaker trophy and a party celebrating the benefits of using active or shared transportation to go to school.

The contest is sponsored by Alameda County's Safe Routes to Schools Program, funded by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Alameda County Transportation Commission.

For a complete list of participating schools, contact Nora Cody, Director of Safe Routes to Schools at and visit
