Hey High School Students – we want to grow and improve Oakville’s biking, boarding, walking and running routes. We need your help.
We’re asking Oakville high school students to sign up for It’s Your 150! High School Challenge. Bike, board, walk, run – it doesn’t matter what active option you choose.
Your comments, photos and trip posts can help us identify where the best places are to put new crosswalks, signs and routes.
It’s not just about how you can help the town. By participating in It’s Your 150! you will:
You can also volunteer to become an It’s Your 150! team leader. As a team leader, you will earn volunteer hours, build new skills in event planning and communications, add an amazing experience to your résumé, and receive a volunteer award.
Team leader activities include: helping to organize your school’s mini-challenges, encouraging other students to log their trips, making announcements and posting updates on social media.
To apply to be a team leader, choose the “Yes, I would be interested in being a Team Leader” option on the consent form. UrbanTrans, (one word) the company handling student outreach for the It’s Your 150! Challenge, will reply within 48 hours.
It’s Your 150! is a Town of Oakville and Ontario 150 research project in partnership with social media fitness app, Strava, and GIS technology firm, Esri.
