Leading Swim School Awards Four Winners with Special Gifts & Monetary Funds to Help Achieve Big Dreams
It's National Optimism Month (March), and the winners of Goldfish Swim School's Dreams Come True in 2022 campaign have a lot to be optimistic about! Throughout the 2-month campaign, families and team members across North America were encouraged to dive into 2022 with big dreams. With goals 50% more likely to be accomplished if written down, those who participated were encouraged to create vision boards to provide the 'finspiration' needed to make BIG waves this year. With hundreds of submissions on social media, four grand prize winners were selected – two children and two team members, each receiving special gifts and $2,022 to put toward achieving their dreams.
At the start of the year, Goldfish Swim School teamed up with Big Life Journal to provide tools and resources to help make dreams come true in 2022. Families were encouraged to pick up vision board templates at their local Goldfish Swim School or visit the 'Goldfish Dream Big Vision Board' landing page, featuring fun and creative elements needed to make a great vision board, and share their vision boards on social media for their chance to win big prizes.
Each of the four grand prize winners received special gifts relating to their 2022 dreams, and accepted their monetary prize during a formal check presentation at their local Goldfish Swim Schools as part of a celebratory event.

"This has been such a fun and rewarding campaign," said Chris McCuiston, CEO and co-founder of Goldfish Swim School, who participated in the campaign alongside co-founder Jenny McCuiston. "While our core mission is and always will be teaching water safety, we play a critical role in developing kids and team members both in the pool and out. It was amazing to see all the big dreams and vision board submissions, and know we could play a small role in helping those dreams come true. It's our hope that through this campaign we were able to help build confidence, encourage and motivate little fish and team members to keep dreaming BIG."
Throughout the campaign, Goldfish Swim School featured dozens of vision boards from across North America on its social media channels, gifting surprise and delight prizes to featured 'Golden Dreamers.' The brand's ambassadors, including World Champion Swimmer & Olympic Gold Medalist Ryan Murphy, Four-Time Olympic Swimming Medalist & First African American World Record Holder Cullen Jones and Goldfish Swim School's official pediatrician Dr. Molly O'Shea of Birmingham Pediatrics + Wellness Center also made special appearances, sharing encouragement and 'finspiration.'
While Goldfish Swim School teaches more than 150,000 children each week, the brand has evolved into so much more than a place for children to learn to swim. Each school becomes ingrained and involved in its community – helping children gain confidence, meet friends and make BIG waves in life. As Goldfish Swim School continues to grow, it remains committed to going above and beyond with every detail to create a GOLDEN Experience!
