Unified Track Champions in Montana
Megan and Claire are Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Montana, USA who are leading a Youth Innovation Project aimed at expanding programing at Unified Schools in their area. Through this project, Megan and Claire will create a Unified relay team in their school and encourage other schools to do the same so that they can compete against each other. Megan and Claire will arrange for the relay teams to compete in Unified track meets and eventually attend the state track meet with the rest of the high school teams.
Megan and Claire want to use this project as another avenue for further inclusion in their school and their district more widely. Over the course of six months, Megan and Claire hope to expand programming at five Unified Schools and welcome four new Unified Schools in Montana. Through their innovative thinking and passion to create space for more inclusion, Megan and Claire are inspiring the Unified Generation to continue advocating for the friendships created through Unified Sports.
