Fuel Up to Play 60 is even more fun to activate in your school this year! A new Playbook - five Healthy Eating Plays and five Physical Activity Plays - will help you focus your Fuel Up to Play 60 efforts. The Plays - some new, some updated - will complement the two Campaigns that will be at the heart of Fuel Up to Play 60 this year. The "Make Your Move" Campaign got students up and moving in fun new ways, and the "It Starts with School Breakfast" Campaign will incentivize your students and school to eat school breakfast.
Each month (ending April 30, 2014), educators who sign up as Program Advisors will be entered into a monthly drawing for a Fuel Up to Play 60 Prize Pack valued at $100. Schools can also earn a Touchdown School Planning Kit from Midwest Dairy to help them keep the momentum to achieve Touch Down School status by April, 2014. The Are You In? Contest motivates your students to track their activities on their personal dashboard. And of course, our popular Touchdown School Award returns to reward schools for a job well done! Stay tuned for these and other chances to win!
The competitive, nationwide funding program is now closed for this school year! The next funding deadline for the 2014-2015 school year will be in June 2014. Learn more about this opportunity.
