Join the 2019 Schools Spirit Week Challenge by sharing your 2019 Schools spirit on social media with daily reflection challenges that relate to the 2019 Schools themes of democracy, diversity, and innovation. Participate in just one of the daily challenges or accept them all! Just be sure to share using #2019Schools or drop us a line via email.

Participating in Spirit Week is easy:

1. Pick a challenge (or two) and print or post the graphic

2. Decide how your class will respond to the challenge–film students’ verbal responses, take pictures, craft artistic responses, or encourage written reflection (don’t forget, we want to hear from you, too!)

3. Share with us! Post on social using #2019Schools, email us, or upload content here.

*On Friday, use the international languages signs to help us welcome 100 millennial leaders from around the world to Virginia for the Global Pathfinder Summit.

The 2019 Commemoration is creating a video to welcome the international participants to Virginia for this event, and we want you and your students to help! Please take pictures, record videos, create art — whatever you would like to do to welcome these leaders to Virginia. The selected submissions will be shown at the Global Pathfinder Summit and around the world!
