“X is for X-Games” – Ideas for Teambuilding or a Yearbook Publicity Event

atozpostcards_xfrontYou know ESPN hosts both Summer and Winter games of Extreme Sports with events like skateboarding, BMX biking, street luge, snowboarding and snowmobiling. Well, what about the Yearbook X-games? Once the book is done, have an X-Game Celebration after school. Have staffers sign up ahead of time for events like these:

  • Big Wheel Slalom
  • Skateboard Paddling
  • 3-legged Cross Country Skipping
  • Nerf Skeet (Frizbee) Shooting

It’s a great way to burn off all that built up stress, and it’s a great prelude to a nice Yearbook banquet where winners receive their medals along with the other staff awards. Or, be really X-treme, and ask ASB if you can host the Yearbook X-Games for the whole school over a couple of lunch periods and have students pay a dollar or two to participate. Instead of gold medals, give away golden tickets to your yearbook signing party!
