Why Grit ‘N Wit?

Grit ‘N Wit is win-win for the students and the school. And the benefits go beyond the obvious.

BENEFITS FOR THE STUDENTS

Students say Grit ‘N Wit is:

FUN

They’re with friends, competing against classmates, running around, climbing over walls, and solving puzzles. It’s way better than being in lectures.

UNIQUE

Have you ever heard of an event that’s part-Amazing Race, part-American Ninja Warrior, plus a few surprises mixed in?

ENGAGING

You cannot passively sit or skip out on the race. (Not that anyone ever wants to once they start.)

INCLUSIVE

Anyone – ANYONE – can participate. College athletes and students living with disabilities have completed the same course.

COMPETITIVE

Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition and bragging rights? And did we mention prizes?

Schools say Grit ‘N Wit also:

PROMOTES TEAM BUILDING

Students literally help each other over obstacles. This translates to other situations in school and beyond.

IS ACTIVE

We know we sit too much. Grit ‘N Wit is a fun way to get everyone moving and grooving.

DEVELOPS GRIT…

The obstacles and puzzles are, naturally, challenging. Overcoming them builds confidence and perseverance.

 

…AND WIT

Students learn new ways of approaching problems and challenges.

ENCOURAGES A GROWTH MINDSET

Students often think they can’t do something. Success at Grit ‘N Wit helps eliminate self-limiting beliefs.
