Olympic Get Set Values Awards launched to reward pupils

Teachers and young people are set to be inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Values with the launch of the Values Awards from Get Set, the official youth engagement programme of the British Olympic Association and British Paralympic Association.

This Autumn term, the Values Awards will offer primary and secondary schools the opportunity to recognise and reward young people aged between seven and 19 for their commitment to the Olympic and Paralympic Values. 

Young people will develop life skills, get active and learn how to become responsible citizens.

These vital life skills are based on the Olympic Values of friendship, excellence, and respect; and the Paralympic Values of inspiration, determination, courage and equality.

Before 2 February, for every student who completes one of the Values Awards, their school will be entered into a draw to receive exclusive prizes – including visits from multiple Paralympic Gold medallist Sophie Christiansen CBE or Rio 2016 silver medal-winning Rugby 7s star James Rodwell, one of five Samsung Tablets, signed athlete goodies or an exclusive Values Awards poster.

Students will work through three categories, comprised of online and offline activities and challenges 
to help them build life skills, get active and become responsible citizens.

The Get Set Values Awards are curriculum-linked for PSHE, PSE, Citizenship and other related programmes of study for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as the broader delivery of values-based education.
