2020-2021 Fitness for Kids/Play 60 Challenge

Health and Wellness Grant Winners

Thank you for all of your hard work, and flexibility as we navigated a very difficult end of the school year. We appreciate all of your feedback as well as your willingness to adjust and adapt to the changing times.

Due to the nature of this past academic school year, we have restructured the guidelines for grant recipients to allow more opportunity for schools to receive a grant funding. We have awarded the top 5 small and top 5 large schools (participation calculated through May 2021) $1,500 health and wellness grants. Instead of the 40 classroom grants, we have awarded schools (with 2+ classrooms) above 60% participation $600, schools above 70% participation $700, schools above 80% $800 and schools above 90% $900 (outside of the top schools).
