More About Awards

Simple and fair, Challenge Awards aren’t based on minutes or miles, but on the percentage of participants based on a school's enrollment. It doesn’t matter if your school is large or small, it just matters how fired up you can be to sign up parents, students and teachers and track.

Percentage of participation is calculated with the following formula: Total number of students, plus parents/guardians and school staff that tracked during the Challenge period, divided by school enrollment data provided by GreatSchools.org

Participation levels may be subject to change in order to ensure a fair and equitable process. Questions should be directed to info@fireupyourfeet.org 

 *Northern Virginia includes the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, Prince William County, Fairfax County and Loudoun County.

**All Virginia counties not listed under the eligible Northern Virginia Counties are eligible to compete for Awards being offered to the rest of the state.
