The General Mills Foundation and the American Dietetic Association Foundation, in partnership with the President’s Challenge (<a href="http://www.presidentschallenge.org/">http://www.presidentschallenge.org/</a>), are accepting applications for the 2007 Champions for Healthy Kids Champions Awards. Each year the Champions program awards fifty grants of $10,000 each to schools and community groups.
Grant recipients have used grant dollars to teach kids about healthy snacks, trying new vegetables, or navigating obstacle courses; training peer educators who deliver health education; and purchasing sports equipment.
Community-based, nonprofit organizations and agencies are eligible to apply. Organizations must have 501(c)(3) or 509(a) status. Preschools, as well as elementary, middle, and high schools are also eligible. The target audience must be youth between the ages of 2 and 20, and the proposal must have at least one nutrition objective and one physical activity objective. In addition, a registered dietician must be an integral part of the program’s planning and activities.
This year’s application form is available on the General Mills Web site.
