There are countless benefits to participating in high school sports, but a lot of concerns as well. To overcome resistance and drive participation, #MyReasonWhy highlights diverse stories and memories shared by students, parents, coaches, officials and community members. DIAA is working with NFHS - and our member schools - to show how participation not only develops individual skills and character for the future, but drives a stronger sense of self and community that students will feel immediately and for the rest of their lives.
We need your help capturing stories from Delaware to share with a nationwide audience by encouraging students, parents, coaches, officials and community members to share their reasons for participating and influential moments - big or small - using the hashtag #MyReasonWhy. We're also collecting stories at nfhs.org/myreasonwhy to feature on the site and social channels, in advertising and in public displays and high schools across the country.
