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 2019-2020 CHALLENGE: In an effort to encourage students’ habit building, we’ve changed things to incentivize students to complete all six logs in a year. The emphasis will lie on grand prizes rather than monthly prizes, we’re providing more visual cues for students to track their progress over the year, and teachers with sustained participation will be eligible for a prize! Here’s how it works:
- Each month students will receive three items in corresponding colors–a gel art pen (this is the monthly incentive), a sticker to place next to their name on a chart you’ll hang in your school, and a raffle ticket to place in a raffle box for a grand prize at the end of the year.
- You’ll draw one ticket at the end of the year (one winner at each school!), and that student will choose from a menu of items including a disc golf set, spikeball, ladder ball, and a Healthy Futures hoodie.
- 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.

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.
