Unified Champion Schools

A National Banner Unified Champion School is one that has demonstrated commitment to inclusion by meeting 10 standards of excellence.  These standards were developed by a national panel of leaders from Special Olympics and the education community.  The primary activities within these standards include:  Special Olympics Unified Sports® (where students with and without disabilities train and compete as team mates), Inclusive Youth Leadership and Whole-School Engagement.  Banner Unified Champion Schools should also be able to demonstrate they are self-sustainable or have a plan in place to sustain these activities into the future.  Click HERE for a complete list of champion schools.
