Unified Champion Schools

Special Olympics Nebraska's Schools Program encourages inclusion, participation, and leadership in students through the power of sport. This partnership between schools and Special Olympics Nebraska includes sports training and competition, inclusive youth leadership and whole school engagement for students of all ages. 

Unified programming empowers youth and educators to be leaders of change. By playing and learning together, we will create a more inclusive world. Students of all abilities have the power to positively impact their school communities by promoting social inclusion.

A Special Olympics Unified Champion School demonstrating commitment to inclusion by meeting 10 standards of excellence receives national recognition as a Banner Unified Champion School. Special Olympics Nebraska is proud to have 26 schools in the state achieve this national honor, and continue to work with students and administrators every day to increase inclusion initiatives in their schools.
