School Challenge For Teachers

The School Challenge focuses on eating better, moving more, and feeling good and the connection between them. With flexible tools, resources and lesson plans, teachers have the opportunity to choose when, where, and how to bring the Challenge to life for their class. The Challenge is adaptable for any learning platform, whether inside a classroom or virtually from home. Teachers can participate as an individual classroom or together with their entire school.


While anyone can utilize these tools and resources in their classrooms, limited print materials and incentives are only available for qualifying Minnesota and Wisconsin schools. If you would like more information on getting started, please email us at info@powerup4kids.org.
