We have school-wide competitions on Fridays during the lunch break. We got a HUGE trophy with an interchangeable medallion. The medallions have the grade levels on them and it is changed to honor the grade that won the previous week. When student council members make announcements to the classes, they get the trophy from the office and encourage their classmates to participate so that their medallion can be on it the next week. Participants must sign up and the rules are posted on Monday for Friday's event. Some team events we have used are hacky sack contest, Orange Pass (the old neck to neck, drop it and you start over game), tricycle relays, etc. Some individual events we have done include "Gotcha" (a basketball freethrow game), hula-hoop contest, etc.
