Here is a press release from the Midwest Dairy Council on what the students had to do to win the contest:
Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program created in partnership with Midwest Dairy Council and the National Football League that encourages students to eat healthy, be active and implement positive changes at school.
The Activity Scavenger Hunt Challenge encouraged students to grab a camera, their friends and even their school faculty to complete a list of activities to get everyone up and moving. By teaming up with their classmates, teachers and families, students had the opportunity to learn how small bursts of activity throughout the day can easily add up to 60 minutes of play. During the scavenger hunt challenge at Timber Ridge, students created human pyramids, challenged teachers with pushups and jumping jacks, and played their favorite sports or activities with their friends.
great to see how students from Illinois are getting creative and finding ways
to be active throughout the school day,” said Lorna Riggs, Health and Wellness Program Manager for Midwest Dairy
Morgan Nichol, P.E. Teacher, and Fuel Up to Play 60 Program Advisor added, “We have a great group of students who are very dedicated to the Fuel Up to Play 60 program here at Timber Ridge. They are always eager to participate in the many challenges such as this one that had them looking for fun and easy ways to get active, and it’s great to see them rewarded for their hard work. Having an elite athlete and a great role model here to speak on behalf of eating healthy and being active is extremely motivating for our students.”
Up to Play 60 Challenges provide an opportunity for students to collaborate
with their peers to showcase what they have learned about “fueling up” with
nutrient-rich foods and getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity every
day. Students and educators can get involved with the program by visiting www.FuelUpToPlay60.com.
