About the Healthiest Student Bodies program
The got milk?(R) campaign's Healthiest Student Bodies program recognizes 25 schools around the country who have proven their commitment to health and wellness. A panel of judges from the School Nutrition Association and the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports chose winning schools based on the relevance and creativity of the essay submission.
Get a Body By Milk
The got milk?(R) Healthiest Student Bodies contest is part of the bigger Body By Milk campaign, which encourages teens to choose nutrient-rich milk in place of sugary sodas. Several studies suggest teens that drink adequate amounts of milk and fewer soft drinks tend to weigh less and have less body fat than those who don't.
The Healthiest Student Bodies contest ran from April through June, 2007
and asked students to submit an essay explaining either how their school
helps its students stay fit and healthy or how they would enhance nutrition
and physical activity at their school. To check out the list of winning
