FAIRBANKS — The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services says 90 Alaska schools have signed up for the Healthy Futures Challenge. Several schools in Fairbanks and elsewhere in the Interior, including Delta, Denali and Galena, are among those participating.
Students participating through their schools must keep logs showing they have “30 minutes of vigorous activity outside of their physical education classroom, three times per week for four consecutive weeks.” The recording is to be done with parental supervision.
Students will submit their completed logs to participating school administrators for incentives. Those who turn in three consecutive qualified logs and/or participate in three community events, or any combination of the two, are eligible for the grand prize drawing for a $300 sports package of the student’s choice, according to a notice about the program.
