NC Schools Win HealthierUS School Challenge!
11/7/2011 9:35 AM
A part of Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign, the HealthierUS Schools Challenge is a national recognition for schools that have created healthier environments by promoting physical activity and nutrition for their students.
Schools qualify for this award through an electonic application process, and are awarded monetary prizes in four levels: Bronze ($500), Silver ($1000), Gold ($1500), and Gold with Distinction ($2,000).
To streamline schools' wellness efforts, we have actually aligned our Zone Health Program here at NCPP with the requirements of the HealthierUS Schools Challenge. Taking our Zone Health Assessment is a great way to progress toward both state and national recommendations.
Congratulations to the following schools in North Carolina for their hard work and success in created healthy school environments!

Re: NC Schools Win HealthierUS School Challenge!
Thomasville City Schools is working to get ALL schools in our system recognized with the HUSSC Gold Award! The application process is hard work and meeting all of the guidelines can be even harder - but it is worth it to provide the highest levels of nutrition and physical activity for our children. They deserve nothing less.
