The mission of the Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention is to increase physical activity and healthy eating to reduce and prevent obesity. They have created the "Growing Healthy Classrooms" program and are encouraging all teachers who promote healthy eating and physical activity to submit an application. The winning teacher will receive recognition at the 2017 NAPSACC Early Childhood Conference. Winners will also receive a press toolkit, which includes a parent letter, drafted social media posts and a newspaper article template.
This is a great way to share with families and the community about the efforts being made to prevent obesity and live a healthier lifestyle in your classrooms.
To fill out an application and to find out more, follow the link to the Coalition's website:
