The official colors for 2016 are cherry red and white.  These colors were selected in collaboration with the launch of a new global “Play Unified” youth campaign that will inspire and mobilize youth around the world to connect with people with intellectual disabilities and create more inclusive communities, leading to a more respectful world for everyone.

From today, leading up to the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics in July 2018, Special Olympics is challenging the nation and the world to embrace this unique civil rights movement for inclusion, unity and respect that is led by people with intellectual disabilities alongside their peers without intellectual disabilities.

In 2016, we hope to receive 400 scarves to give to athletes, volunteers and supporters at the State Winter Games and Polar Plunges. In order for the scarves to get to Winter Games, the deadline is Monday, January 4. Please send them to the State Office.

The official Indiana colors for the 2016 year are:

Red Heart – 319 Cherry Red
Red Heart – 311 White

We recommend scarves be a 6-inch width and 54-60 inches including fringe in length. We have no pattern requirements.
