Grants of up to $4,000 to USA middle and high schools on behalf of students with outstanding projects that encourage their peers to choose healthy foods and participate in physical activity. These grants are intended to encourage individual 5th - 12th grade students to develop: (a) projects that boost the number of students who eat school breakfast; (b) ideas that improve the availability of healthy food in school; and (c) ways to increase the chances for physical activity before, during, and/or after school, and to get more students taking part in those activities.
The GENYOUth Foundation and its partners are especially interested in funding solutions that help those students most at‐risk for poor nutrition and physical inactivity. Projects that rally support from people at your school and in your community (e.g., principals, teachers, staff, parents, and others) and get them behind building a healthier school have the greatest chance of success.
