$1,000 Scholarships for Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassadors
Friday, December 14, 2018
Fuel Up to Play 60 empowers students to lead their schools in fueling up with nutrient-rich foods like low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains; and getting active at least 60 minutes every day.
Through Fuel Up to Play 60, Dairy MAX provides NFL star-power – such as Dallas Cowboy Travis Frederick, Denver Bronco Justin Simmons, Houston Texan DJ Reader and New Orleans Saint Cam Jordan – to get students, Program Advisors and whole schools excited about healthy living. It can work on its own or with other programs you’re currently doing, with free resources and rewards systems to make implementation easy. It also helps you meet school wellness goals.
An adult (or adults), often a PE teacher, health teacher or wellness coordinator, goes to the Fuel Up to Play 60 website to sign up as the school’s Program Advisor.
Program Advisors then work with student teams to complete the Touchdown Steps on the Fuel Up to Play 60 website.
Schools can choose from the list of Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Plays in the Playbook or invent their own. Student Teams can help plan, promote and execute the Plays.
Schools have access to free resources and tools, and can participate in optional contests for cool prizes.
You can do Fuel Up to Play 60 with nothing more than imagination and passion, but if you want to apply for funds, competitive grants are available. Go to Fuel Up to Play 60 to apply for a grant. Your Dairy MAX representative can help you with your application – just be sure to contact him or her at least a month ahead of the deadline.
