Celebrating the Power of Spirit

National School Spirit Day celebrates the power of school spirit
and the positive impact it has in schools and communities across the country.

National School Spirit Day falls on the third Friday of every September, and kicks off
the Varsity Brands School Spirit Awards – the search for students, staff and high schools
across the nation that go above and beyond the definition of spirit.
