EVENT DATE: Mar 01, 2011
This Spring, SOSMentor will be partnering with LAUSD Beyond the Bell, LAUSD School Nursing Services, St. Vincent Medical Center and Newtritious™ to present the LAUSD Healthy Schools Campaign. The LAUSD Healthy Schools Campaign is an unprecedented effort to raise awareness about nutrition and fitness in our schools. The goal of the Campaign is to spread healthy messages throughout the community and to improve the health of school communities.
Students from over 700 LAUSD schools will compete in a district-wide poster contest. A poster contest committee will be spearheaded at each school by Beyond the Bell (BTB) staff and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Nurses to determine the top 3 submissions for each school. Final posters from 8 LAUSD Local Districts will be judged during the week of May 16, 2011. District winners will be recognized by the Board of Education, in District newsletters and on the LAUSD television station, KLCS.
The LAUSD Healthy Schools Campaign will present 12 Disneyland tickets, 3 bikes & three $100 sporting gift cards to the 9 students who win the SOSMentor Shape Up poster contest. Help us in our effort to reward students taking charge in fighting childhood obesity and donate today!
