Teen Poster Competition: Focus on Health – Cash Prizes

Wednesday, December 28, 2011, 3:36 pm

Calling all students enrolled in Montana K-12 schools! Are you interested in gaining notoriety and possibly a cash award for your school? Look no further. The Focus on Health video competition has arrived!

The Montana Team Nutrition Program is looking for student-made videos that feature examples of healthy eating, active living, and an overall healthy school environment. We are calling on students enrolled in K-12 Montana schools to take part.  Through this video contest, your school, organization, or club will have the opportunity to win a cash prize, gain statewide recognition, and have your video featured at statewide events.

Videos can be about any school program that promotes student health and wellbeing. These could include: improvements in the nutrition of foods available in school meals, healthy snack options (vending, concessions, student stores, etc.), Farm-to-School programs, increased opportunity for physical activity, expanded school breakfast programs and healthy school fundraising programs.

The video submission deadline is January 31, 2012. For more information, official rules, and registration form, visit: http://www.opi.mt.gov/FocusOnHealthVideoContest/
