50 Schools Recognized for Active Schools Progress

Washington, DC | News Story

Fifty schools from across the country are being celebrated for making strides in creating an Active School environment. Each selected school will receive physical education and physical activity equipment or program materials to applaud and support their efforts.

To be eligible to win a progress incentive offered by one of seven Let’s Move! Active Schools partners, each of 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 Dec. 1, 2016 — Feb. 28, 2017.

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 356 schools have received Let’s Move! Active Schools progress incentives since the program launched in October 2015.
