Healthy Schools Campaign Wants Your Ideas: Ideas for Health & Wellness Contest!

July 14, 2011

Have you made a difference for wellness at your school? Do you have tips for healthy fundraising? Ever help implement physical activity or nutrition education activities? Well, we want to hear from you! You're invited to participate in HSC's Ideas for Health & Wellness contest. 

Intro
Your ideas will support schools in making healthy changes! Ideas shared in the contest will be featured in resources and publications to help schools across the country implement health and wellness programs. Plus, you can win cool gift cards and a wellness kit for your school!

Every Monday beginning July 18, we’ll post a question about ways everyone can make schools healthier. The contest opens Monday at 8 a.m. CST and will close Sunday, 11:59 p.m. CST of every week until August 14. 

We encourage you to enter in one of four ways:

Facebook_logo Facebook. Like us on Facebook. When each week’s question is posted, respond to the question with a comment that shares your story, idea, and tips. (Please remember to share your ideas as a comment on each week’s post rather than as a general comment on HSC’s wall.)

 

Twitter_Logo Twitter. Follow @healthyschools. When each week’s question is posted, tweet with your idea with the tag #hscidea. There’s only 140 characters, so make ‘em count! (Submissions that do not include #hscidea will not be counted . . . we may not be able to find them!).

 

RSS_Logo Blog. Each week, we’ll post a question on our blog. Share your story, idea, and tips in the comments section of that week’s post. 

 

 

Email_Logo Email. Send an email with your idea to ideas@healthyschoolscampaign.org for that week's question. Put the question in the subject line.

 

We will randomly select a winner who will be contacted in respect to their submission. (Facebook winners will receive a message, Twitter winners will receive a DM, and blog commenters will receive an email). We’ll share stories and ideas from the contest in the coming weeks. All entrants will be recognized when their ideas are used.

Questions? Contact us.

Good luck! We look forward to hearing your ideas. Be sure to check back on Monday for the first question!
