Hard Work Yields Rewards for 55 Active Schools

Washington, DC | News Story

Fifty-five schools from across the country are being celebrated for their progress in creating an Active School environment and have been selected to receive physical education and physical activity equipment, program materials or curriculum to help applaud and support their efforts.

The recognized schools made improvements in at least one area of their Let’s Move! Active Schools Action Plan and noted their success by marking an item complete from June 1 – August 31, 2016 to be eligible to win a progress incentive offered by one of eight Let’s Move! Active Schools partners.

Thanks to the generosity of the Let’s Move! Active Schools partners, the quarterly progress incentives program rewards schools that are committed to making active and healthy changes with additional physical education and physical activity resources to help continue their great work.

More than 190 schools have benefitted from Let’s Move! Active Schools progress incentives since it launched in October 2015. Spanning the entire program, 1,439 schools in total were entered into the quarterly drawings, resulting in 13 percent of eligible schools being rewarded for their hard work around implementing physical education and physical activity best practices in their respective environments.

All schools enrolled in Let’s Move! Active Schools are encouraged to update their Assessment and Action Plan by November 30 to eligible for more progress incentives to be distributed in January.

Of the 260 schools that marked an Action Plan item complete from June 1 – August 31, 2016, the following 55 schools were recently awarded a progress incentive:
