Cold Lake High School was recognized by the Unified School Award from Special Olympics Alberta last weekend. They were recognized for their ongoing support and promotion of Unified Sports.
In a press release from Special Olympics Alberta CLHS was exemplified for setting “a positive example for other schools in their region with their annual Unified Bean Bag Toss event.” The event showcases custom logo’d Baggo boards and the traditional cha-cha-slide after lunch. They strive to make this event like any other tournament their school sports teams take part in- teachers and students are encouraged to wear their school swag the day of the event and different classes show up throughout the day to cheer on all of the teams.
“CLHS was our Alberta representatives at the Special Olympics Ontario Youth Summit at the 2019 Invitational Youth Games, where they took over the ASAA Instagram account to interview the other Alberta school teams,” the released stated of the school.
It was noted that the school also sent a team to the first Unified multi-event at the 2019 ASAA Track & Field Provincial Championships in Calgary.
