INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 17, 2017) — The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and the Nebraska School Activities Association are beginning the second year of the #MyReasonWhy campaign, which is designed to showcase the tremendous value that high school sports and activities offer to students. Through real-life examples, #MyReasonWhy has re-affirmed that high school students involved in education-based activity programs demonstrate a higher level of academic performance and set themselves up for successful careers following high school graduation. In the #MyReasonWhy campaign, the NFHS, the Nebraska School Activities Association and the other state high school associations are working to ensure that education-based programs are available for years to come. The goal of this national campaign is to demonstrate why participation in high school sports has increased every year for the past 28 years, and why participation in school-based sports and activities provide students the best opportunities for success.
