How does the Challenge work? It’s simple! Students who are active for at least 60 minutes a day, 15 days a month, and record their activity on the Healthy Futures Activity Log are awarded fun incentives when their school representative submits the information to Healthy Futures via the online app.
WE HAVE COVID-19 ADAPTIVE OPTIONS: We know this year will be different for everyone so we have options suited for every type of learning environment. The Healthy Futures Challenge is for all Alaska kids, whether they are learning in-school or at-home.
In addition to our traditional activity log, we are now offering versions that can be filled out electronically by students and families at home. We also have a new activity log that also incorporates other important health indicators that teachers may choose to use as an added health education tool.
GRAND PRIZE WINNERS AT EVERY SCHOOL: In an effort to encourage students’ habit building, we incentivize students to complete all six logs in a year by presenting a student from every school with a grand prize. The more logs completed, the better the chance of winning. Here’s how it works:
- When a student completes a monthly log they will receive a raffle ticket along with their monthly prize, which they’ll place in a raffle box for a grand prize drawing at the end of the year.
- One ticket per school will be drawn at the end of the year, and that student will choose from a menu of items including a disc golf set, spikeball, ladder ball, and a Healthy Futures hoodie.
IN APPRECIATION OF OUR PARTNER TEACHERS: At the end of the year, Coordinators whose schools have participated every month and have had at least 20% participation in both the Spring and Fall Challenges will be entered in a smartphone or tablet drawing.
RESOURCES: Regardless of your education setting we have tools to help make the Healthy Futures Challenge a success! Visit our Challenge Resource page here. Parents, visit our Family Resources page here.
