Residents are asked to choose the best wellness video produced by elementary school students in this year’s Schools on the Move 5210 Challenge.
Each February, UCHealth’s Healthy Kids Club coordinates the challenge, where northern Colorado schools compete by keeping track of healthy habits and activity every day.
Prize money is awarded to the top schools, in different categories, to use toward physical education equipment or school wellness initiatives. This year, 84 elementary schools and thousands of students, staff and parents participated.
Participating schools are also invited to create a video to earn more prize money. Videos are voted on by the community. Last year, more than 4,000 people voted. This year, schools created fun, informative videos highlighting wellness efforts. Look for breaking news alerts, high energy classrooms and lots of dancing.
Video challenge finalists include eight northern Colorado elementary schools. Healthy Kids Club is asking the community to help pick the winners.
- Werner Elementary, Fort Collins.
- Mead Elementary, Mead.
- Grandview Elementary, Windsor.
- Milliken Elementary, Milliken.
- Tozer Elementary, Windsor.
- Ponderosa Elementary, Loveland.
- Tavelli Elementary, Fort Collins.
- Coyote Ridge Elementary, Fort Collins.
Prize money will be awarded to the three videos with the most votes. Voting ends at noon April 4.
