Join the Mission: Healthy Kids Healthy Schools Challenge: Physical Activity
September 21, 2018
Mission: Healthy Kids, a partnership of Kohl’s Cares® and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, is excited to invite all Wisconsin K-12 schools to take part in the Fall 2018 Healthy Schools Challenge: Physical Activity. The challenge is free, and it offers educators fun and interactive ways to introduce or continue to implement physical activity in your classrooms. The challenge takes place October 1-November 9, 2018.
You can choose from three outlined challenges (Walk Wisconsin, Activity Pyramid or Active Brain Breaks), or create your own. Beginning October 1, you can register and get started at the Healthy Schools Challenge: Physical Activity page. The challenge guidelines are easy to follow, and a Challenge Summary Rubric is included to guide you through the process.
A limited number of free Healthy Schools Challenge Classroom kits will be mailed out after you register your class, on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Kits include pedometers, posters, a Challenge Guide and giveaway items.
Submit your Challenge Summary by November 9, 2018 to qualify for one of 20 classroom awards. In addition, three special $500 awards, designed to further work with policy, systems and environmental changes focused on physical activity, will also be awarded.
