An exciting, interactive game show with an important message for every student!
The Super U! Challenge (super YOU!) is an action-packed school assembly that promotes a bully-free school environment by encouraging students to build positive character traits and identify (and stop!) bullying behavior. It’s all about challenging students to become their own “personal super heroes” and let their best traits shine – at school and at home.
The Super U! Challenge is designed after classic Kid’s TV game shows such as “Double Dare” and the current Nickelodeon smash-hit “Brain Surge”. During the 45-minute show, contestants from the audience are invited to take part in imaginative, funny, and wacky interactive challenges that involve oversize props, creative costumes, and yes…even some slime!
Each exciting challenge is based around a specific message about bullying and positive character traits that reinforces what students hear in school.
Unlike a traditional “quiz show” assembly that requires students to answer questions about curriculum, The Super U! Challenge does not put students “on-the-spot” or require that they have memorized any facts. The only requirement of the hand-on challenges is that the volunteers (and the audience!) are ready to have fun. This means students from all grade levels can participate in the show - and as soon as they see the wild challenges, there is never any shortage of eager volunteers.
In addition to helping kids identify bullying behavior and encouraging positive character traits, The Super U! Challenge also promotes teamwork and cooperation among students.
Topics highlighted in this program:
- Building friendships and trust
- Avoid being a bully
- How your actions build character
- Being a part of a community
- Good Sportsmanship & Teamwork
Schools in Illinois can use the Super U! Challenge to help meet requirements for bully prevention programs in their school. This program is also recommended to Ohio schools who promote the "Six Pillars of Character" or "Bucket Filling" concept in their school.

IN THE NEWS:
Click on a newspaper to read articles about how schools have used Super U! as part of their initatives to prevent bullying:
"I had one student look at me during the assembly and state, 'I've been smiling so much my cheeks hurt!'. That translates to a definite 'thumbs up' for elementary students. The presenters were able to deliver a message to a group of nearly 600 students, while capturing their attention the entire time. It was definitely money well spent. "

The specific challenges in each show vary based on the grade level of the audience, size of performance space, etc. A typical performance includes about 5-6 main challenges. Student contestants may have to dress up as quickly as possible as the ultimate kid super hero, dig through buckets of slime to find key words related to bullying, work together to pass slippery batons to teammates, or fling foam objects into baskets on top of their teammates head! Every challenge in this unique assembly performance is created to be entertaining and exciting for both the volunteers and the audience.
Is the show messy?
The show does a great job of giving the illusion of being messy (which students love), but it is all very controlled. Even the “slime” used in the show has been specially created to be school friendly and mess-free.
