Go for Health! Collaborative
In 2004, school districts nationwide were required to create wellness policies that put their commitment to student health in writing. The wellness policies include goals for nutrition education and physical activity, and nutrition guidelines for all foods sold on school campus during the school day.
School Wellness Recognition Award
The School Wellness Recognition Award is an appreciation program for those schools, districts, and individuals who have made a concerted effort to adopt into both principle and practice the goals of the School Wellness Policies. At the Go for Health! Collaborative, we recognize that each school must make sacrifices in the already busy schedules of school staff in order to make changes on campus. But a well-nourished and active child is a better learnerónothing is more important than the physical well being of each student.
