Cool School Challenge

Students are some of the COOLEST Polar Plunge participants. SO cool, in fact, that we have a category just for you!  

Like other Plungers, students can choose to participate at one of our 24 Polar Plunge locations, or they can choose the Create Your Own Plunge option, and host a Plunge at their own school or community.  

Let’s see who can make the biggest splash! Schools can compete against each other earn the title of Coolest School locally and statewide.  

To learn all of the details read through our Cool School Challenge Guide. Then, you can check out how to get started, find your local Polar Plunge, and sign up to BE COOL and TAKE THE PLUNGE.  

To learn more, please contact your local Plunge Director. Or, if you are a Unified Champion School interested in participating, contact Jennifer Kelso to learn more.  

*Please be safe with your Create Your Own Plunge choices. Special Olympics Illinois is not responsible for any injuries that occur while participating in the Create Your Own Plunge option. Learn more here.*
