Discovery Education and the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation are challenging teachers to be involved in the fight against childhood obesity.
The Find Your Balance Challenge brings grades K-5 teachers and students together to create an action plan that addresses energy balance needs in their school community. Designed to reward student teams for taking steps to achieve energy balance, the challenge’s grand prize-winning class will receive a $30,000 grant from Sports Authority and other prizes. Two second-place schools will win $10,000 grants.
