Ideas for Health & Wellness Contest! Tips for Healthy Fundraising

July 18, 2011 | Written By:

For years, some schools have sold candy, sweets, and other unhealthy snacks to raise money for school activities. With the rise in childhood obesity and increased interest in sending consistent messages about wellness at school, more and more school administrators are moving away from fundraising efforts that sell these products and are finding other ways to successfully raise funds. 

This week, Healthy Schools Campaign asks:

What are your ideas for successful school fundraisers that don’t rely on unhealthy food? 

Submissions close Sunday, July 24 at 11:59 p.m.

Remember, there are four ways to enter Healthy Schools Campaign Ideas for Health & Wellness Contest:

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!).

All entrants will be recognized when their ideas are used.
