Elite Sport and Culture Week: October 20-25

Elite Sport and Culture Week will promote and celebrate the Olympic Movement, Olympic and Paralympic athletes, and sport culture through educational and inspirational festivities accessible to all ages, cultures, income levels, and abilities. Visits to Tiffin schools by a dozen or more Olympians, Paralympians, and coaches will stress the values of the Olympics (friendship, respect, and excellence) while addressing topics such as performance enhancement drugs, (cyber) bullying, relationship violence, or overcoming obstacles.  Additional festivities include a youth sport challenge and medal ceremony at the YMCA, the Festival of Champions at the Heminger Center, an Art Exhibit by a renown Olympian, a Trivia Contest in the Marion Center, and a community breakfast panel featuring Olympians and a member of the Court of Arbitration for Sports. Additional activities to enhance the week are being planned.   A tool-kit featuring grade-appropriate Olympic-themed lesson plans will be distributed to Tiffin schools before the 2018-19 school year.
