The 2015 Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador Summit is open to applications until February 13.
Students across the United States participating in the Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassador program can apply to attend the 2015 Student Ambassador Summit until February 13. Students who are Ambassadors for Fuel Up to Play 60 are leaders at their schools, inspiring other students to be active, and leading healthy changes.
Fuel Up to Play 60, a national wellness program founded by the National Dairy Council and National Football League (NFL) in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), encourages students to make small changes at school every day, to choose healthy foods and be physically active for at least 60 minutes every day. Students earn points for reporting their healthy eating and physical activity, and they progress to new levels to unlock games, collectibles and win prizes. The program has been adopted in more than 70,000 schools nationwide.
The annual Student Ambassador Summit brings together the best student thinkers and leaders to learn about communication, teamwork, and leadership to help them spread the Fuel Up to Play 60 message. The event welcomes State and National Ambassadors as well as select School Ambassadors, to provide them with training and give them an opportunity to represent their schools and communities on a national level.
The Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador Summit is an event that gives students a unique opportunity to spend time with NFL players, to show off their healthy cooking skills, and get valuable information that will help them become even better role models and make an impact at their schools.
The students qualified to apply for a chance to attend the 2015 event must have earned at least 25,000 points as part of the program. They must be at least 11 years old by July and at least entering 6th grade in the 2015-16 school year. Their school must also have a registered Program Advisor, an educator who supports their activities and helps them recruit other students and adults to join.
