Stand Up For School Wellness!
In past years, hundreds of student participants in our poster contest have shown us what school-based physical and health education, physical activity, and wellness programs looked like to them. This year, it’s your students’ turn to think big and share their school health and wellness message across the City!
The new 2018 School Wellness Campaign Contest opens today, giving all K – 12 New York City public school students the opportunity to create a campaign or public service announcement (PSA) about a school health or wellness issue they care about. Think about an image, slogan, logo, song, or message they would like to see on a poster, bumper-sticker, campaign button, subway ad, TV or social media campaign, tee shirt, or…we can’t wait to see what your students stand up for!
Your school can win prizes including
  • a free school mural created in partnership with Groundswell,
  • field trips and student activities sponsored by Appalachian Mountain Club and other partners,
  • t-shirts printed with the winning design, and other surprises!
The student winner in the song, spoken word, and video category gets to work with Hip Hop Public Health and professional producers to produce a free track for their video. Other winning students will receive free passes to health and fitness opportunities, and all student winners and runners up will receive a swag bag. Winning entries will be featured in the 2018-19 School Wellness calendar, on promotional items such as t-shirts, and on social media and the NYCDOE website.
Submission deadline: Monday, March 19, 2018.
