Live Healthy Iowa announces new competition for Iowa schools
AMES — Is providing a healthy environment for your kids or students a top priority of yours for the new year? Live Healthy Iowa and Live Healthy Iowa Kids have unveiled a new opportunity to build a culture of wellness in your school. The K-12 Cup Challenge was designed to increase adult and student participation in the 10 Week Wellness Challenge offered by Live Healthy Iowa, a program of the Iowa Sports Foundation.
The winner of the K-12 Cup Challenge will be the school with the highest percentage of participation and completion among students in Live Healthy Iowa Kid’s 10 Week Wellness Challenge and staff in Live Healthy Iowa 10 Week Wellness Challenge. The winning school will be awarded the traveling trophy for a year. All schools who participate in this challenge will receive a banner for display in their school that states their school chooses to live healthy.
“I think it says a lot for a school to embark on this challenge,” said Lisa Weber, coordinator for Live Healthy Iowa. “It shows a strong commitment toward reversing the obesity epidemic we are experiencing in America and more specifically, Iowa. This challenge gives schools a chance to increase physical activity levels and encourage healthier nutrition habits; which is definitely the direction Iowa needs to go in order to become the healthiest state in the nation!”
