Celebrating School Wellness Success

Oregon Department of Education/Dairy Council/OSNA School Wellness Award is an award that was created as a way to recognize and celebrate schools with policies, programs and the infrastructure to support and promote the connection between health and academic achievement, healthy eating, physical activity, school employee wellness and community engagement.

Healthier US School Challenge is a voluntary certification initiative that has recognized thousands of schools for their efforts in improving food and beverage offerings, teaching kids about nutritious food choices and being physically active, providing opportunities for physical activity, and having supportive school wellness policies.

Healthy Schools Program National Recognition Award is presented to schools who complete the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s benchmarks.
