National GEAR UP Week

Start the school year with a bang by celebrating National GEAR UP Week Sept. 23-27! It’s a great way to kick-off the year with exciting educational activities that can help build a college-going culture in your school and community.

While GEAR UP schools across the country will be celebrating National GEAR UP Week Sept. 23-27, you can use these materials any time of the year. Click here to download a packet of materials and ideas for you including flyers about Oklahoma’s colleges, school announcements and other fun activities designed to get the word out about GEAR UP and the importance of going to college. Choose to do all of the activities, some of them, or create your own!

Remember to share photos that can be featured on Oklahoma GEAR UP’s social media sites (Facebook and Twitter)! Use our GEAR UP hashtags - #GEARUP; #GEARUPWorks; #OKGEARUP; #NationalGEARUPWeek. Also, please email pictures to throughout the week to be used on social media and other promotional materials during the year. Have a great National GEAR UP Week!
