Every September is deemed “Sneaker September” across Lincoln Public Schools. LPS Employees are encouraged to wear sneakers each Friday in support of personal wellness. Each year, TeamMates makes a sneaker-themed button. When LPS employees donate $10 or more to TeamMates, they receive a button and can wear jeans on Fridays, along with their sneakers.
For Sneaker September 2019, we asked high school mentees to participate in a button design contest. Below are the three finalists. The button design with the most votes for “1st Choice” wins. All who donate a minimum of $10 to TeamMates are welcome to vote for a button, whether an LPS employee or not. Additional buttons may be ordered for $5 each.
