Dear 2014 Scarf Project Contributors,
On behalf of Special Olympics Indiana, thank you for your involvement in the 2014 Scarf Project! The Scarf Project is a symbol of unity, community, and support within the Special Olympics movement. We were amazed with the outpouring of time and talents people donated to make scarves for Special Olympics Indiana athletes, volunteers, and supporters. It was evident that each and every scarf was handmade with love, encouragement, and generosity.
We received nearly 700 scarves, but that does not mean your support for Special Olympics Indiana has to stop there. Like us on Facebook (/soindiana) and follow us on Twitter (@soindiana.org). We hope you will join us once again, as the 2015 Scarf Project has officially begun.

The 2015 Special Olympics Indiana Scarf Project officially launched on March 1st.
This web page on our website has been created as a resource tool for you. It has the official colors, dimensions, and other resources. Please share with family and friends that enjoy this craft.
The official colors this year are Royal Blue, Bright Yellow, and Hot Red. These colors were selected in collaboration with our newest partnership Champions Together. Champions Together is a collaborative partnership between the Indiana High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics Indiana that promotes servant leadership among student athletes while changing their lives as well as the lives of those with intellectual disabilities. This is just one way to help encourage and inspire the athletes, partners, coaches, and volunteers that are a part of this exciting movement.
In 2015, we hope to receive 800 scarves to give to athletes, volunteers and supporters at Winter Games, Polar Plunges, State Conference, and to valuable members of the Champions Together Partnership.
In order for the scarves to get to Winter Games, the deadline is Monday, January 6. We will accept scarves throughout the month of January though. Please send them to the State Office. For questions, contact Rachel Robertson.
The official Indiana colors for 2015 are:
Red Heart Super Saver – 385 Royal Blue
Red Heart Super Saver – 324 Bright Yellow
Red Heart Super Saver – 390 Hot Red
We recommend scarves be a 6-inch width and a 6-foot length, but they do not have to be.
We have no pattern requirements. Each scarf is handcrafted with love, and we welcome each pattern be chosen in the same fashion.
For more information, please contact Rachel Robertson or 317-328-2000.
Please mail scarves to:
