We invite you to attend this year’s event which will be hosted at the Riverside Hotel Boise. This event will honor past year grantees, will include a presentation from a grant recipient about the impact that their grant has made and will include refreshments, a no host bar and music,and drama provided by students from the District.
Please consider attending and supporting this wonderful annual event which recognizes our amazing teachers and all that they do for our students! We encourage your attendance as well as your sponsorship consideration of this year’s event. It promises to be a fantastic evening!

The 41st annual Simplot Games will be held February 14-16, 2019, at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena. The J.R. Simplot Company-sponsored event has become one of the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field events since it was first held in 1979.
Although the 2,200 athletes from 19 different states, Canada, Australia and New Zealand who travel to Pocatello come to shine under Holt Arena’s bright lights, the Simplot Games weekend itself is about more than just standing atop a podium.
Competitors get the chance to mingle with Olympic legends like Dick Fosbury (our chairman), Andre Phillips, Willie Banks, Stacy Dragila, and more. The Games also offers recognition for everyone with the Parade of Athletes, a truly Olympic-style event.
Simplot Games is unique because it is an open meet, which means athletes do not need a certain qualifying time or distance to be able to compete. Everyone is welcome at the Games allowing high school athletes from all over the chance to compete and have fun. It truly makes Simplot Games an extraordinary experience for everyone.
