Be a Champion is about making sure that you as a student can make the most of the once in a life time opportunity that the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games presents.
We’re looking for students to become a 2012 Champion and to take their inspiration from the London 2012 Games and excite and enthuse students across the UK to make sure students play their part in the 2012 Games.
Whether you’re passionate about sport, love your art and culture or dedicated to spreading the message about creating a sustainable environment there are opportunities to suit everyone. We want you to find something that suits you and you’re passions.
The Be a Champion site will contain information about all the different activities that you can engage with that have been inspired by the Games. Whether it is being part of the London 2012 education programme Get Set, finding out about the Torch Relay or running your own Games inspired programme. Our online map will help you find out what’s going on in your local area and you can sign up to our newsletter to get monthly updates about all the hottest new opportunities and activities.
As part of the project we’ll also be encouraging students’ unions to appoint a Be a Champion Student Ambassador. The Ambassadors will promote ways to get engaged with the 2012 Games throughout their union. They’ll be supported through the development of online resources which will give students and students’ unions all the tools they need to engage with the 2012 Games. Talk to your students’ union to make sure they’re involved in the project and find out how they’ll be recruiting their Be a Champion Ambassador.
