The Back To Cool Challenge is designed to help you get back into a healthy mental and physical mindset for the upcoming school year. By the end of the four week challenge, you will better understand what behaviors and attitudes will help you be more successful, confident and cool going into your first day of school.
Being cool, by our definition, means you are confident, brave, hardworking, and a friend to all.
What exactly is the challenge, and how does it work?
Each Monday over the next four weeks, we will launch a new mental and physical challenge. Each challenge will have several prompts that you can participate in and submit your results, each prompt being worth a certain amount of points. Prizes will be awarded to the challenger with the highest amount of points at the end of each week! **Note: all submissions must be submitted by posting to your Instagram FEED not stories. Thanks!
Can I join the challenge anytime during the four week period?
Yes, you can join the challenge or complete any of the prompts anytime, your submissions just have to be posted between the dates 8/6-9/2. *If you are private, please DM a screen shot of your submissions so that we can track your points. A scoreboard will be posted via Instagram every Friday so that you can see who’s in the lead. Winners will be announced every Sunday.
