A picture is worth a thousand words! That’s why students in SOSMentor’s LAUSD Healthy Schools Campaign will be creating posters that illustrate healthy messages about nutrition and physical activity. The contest is open to students of all ages – elementary, middle, and high school – all throughout LAUSD.
As educators, we know it’s important to engage students with a variety of different learning styles. Creating a poster is a wonderful way to engage students who are artistically inclined, while supporting visual learning as well. Through the contest, students can share what they’ve learned in the Healthy Schools Campaign with the entire school district.
The contest entry form also includes a “Students Teaching Parents” element, in which students bring the lessons they’ve learned home to their parents. By sharing what they’ve learned with their families, “Students Teaching” Parents builds leadership skills and helps reinforce the program’s healthy messages.
The winners of the elementary, middle, and high school poster contests will be rewarded with fun prizes, including four Disneyland tickets for the 1st place winners, a bicycle for 2nd place, and a sports gift card for 3rd place. The winning entries will also be featured in LAUSD’s 2011-2012 Healthy Schools calendar.
Staying healthy and fit is all about participating in fun activities that make us feel good! Here at SOSMentor, we are encouraging our students to bring healthy messages to life through art and community involvement.
