Why Participate


We know that getting a jump start on healthy habits and preferences early in childhood will set the stage for a lifetime of enjoying fruits and veggies, moving joyfully and feeling good.

The PowerUp School Challenge is unique, with a special focus on providing fun, pressure-free, positive opportunities to explore and discover fruits and veggies, ways to move and ways to relax and recharge. And that can make all the difference.

By participating, teachers and youth leaders:

    • Receive fun and engaging PowerUp resources to share with students and families
    • Are guided through the Challenge with weekly program communications
    • Can earn incentives for their class, group and school
    • Have flexibility to choose when, where and how to implement the Challenge
    • Support and encourage students to eat better, move more and feel good
    • Prioritize student wellness and do what's best for kids!
