Together Counts: Smart from the Start

The Smart from the Start Awards are designed to reward preschools (including Head Start programs) that develop plans for creating practical, long-term improvements in nutrition and physical activity at their school. As a preschool teacher, you are encouraged to identify your school’s Energy In and Energy Out needs, to write a goal statement that addresses these needs, and to create a simple action plan that incorporates support from your community in order to meet this goal. Maximum award: $20,000. Eligibility: U.S. residents over the age of 21 employed at an early childhood education center or elementary school in the United States that offers a Pre-K program or Head Start program. Deadline: February 28, 2014.
