Inclusion Week (March 4-8th, 2024)

Each Spring, Special Olympics Iowa and Best Buddies partner together for Inclusion Week to promote, advocate and celebrate inclusive efforts taking place in 150+ schools and surrounding communities. These schools include preschool, elementary, middle, high and college levels.

This will be the sixth year that Special Olympics Iowa has celebrated #InclusionWeek, and the second year partnering with Best Buddies for the festivities.

Spread the Word Annual Day of Awareness is on Wednesday, March 6th, 2024. The day is aimed at showcasing the impact of inclusive language and actions so individuals of all abilities feel accepted. Students and educators are encouraged to sign their school’s pledge banner.

Join us in sharing the importance of inclusion!
