Special Olympics Kansas Unified Champion Schools Program brings high school youth with and without intellectual disabilities together through education and sports to create school communities of acceptance and respect.

Special Olympics Kansas invites you to bring up to six students (preferred equal distribution between students with an intellectual disability and student peers) from your school to an inclusive team-building summit and to learn about how your school can become a Unified Champion School.
