How it Works


Over the course of one month, on any day and at any time...

Teachers or youth leaders guide students through one activity related to each PowerUp theme...

For a total of 3 activities! 

Teachers and youth leaders can choose activities, videos and lesson plans from our online PowerUp resource galleries or use their own ideas that get students excited about eating better, moving more and feeling good! 

Here are the program materials you can expect from us: 

    • Weekly Email Communications
    • Online Resource Galleries
    • High-Quality Lesson Plans
    • Classroom Poster*
    • Student Magazines*
    • Classroom or Youth Group Incentives*
    • School-Wide Incentives*

EARN INCENTIVES! There are two ways to earn wellness dollars! 

  1. Principals or leaders complete the School Assessment Survey to earn the school-wide wellness dollars. 
  2. After participating, individual educators complete the Post-Challenge Survey and tell us what they did to PowerUp the class or group to earn their classroom incentive!
