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.
NEW FOR THE 2018-2019 CHALLENGE: This year students will receive a different color rubber bracelet each month they complete a log. We are challenging students to collect all six colors throughout the year and wear the bracelets proudly. We’ve also changed the way grand prizes are awarded: Students who collect all three bracelets in a Challenge will be entered in a drawing for a Fitness To-Go Kit, and one student from each school will receive this prize. Also, all children who complete six logs will be eligible to win a “Healthy Futures Champion” hoodie. We’ll select a winner by drawing from each school. We’ve made improvements to our database in order to track students over both the fall and spring challenges in hopes that incentivizing children to complete all six logs will help in building habit-forming behaviors around physical activity.

Almost 200 schools and 15,000 K-6 students across the state of Alaska participate in the Healthy Futures Challenge.
Each month of the challenge period, students fill out the activity log with a deadline for returning them to the Healthy Futures representative at the school. The representative enters the student information into the Healthy Futures online App, and students receive incentives for their activity.
