Stay Tuned for 6th Annual School Wellness Poster Contest Winners

Thanks to all New York City public school students who submitted poster designs for the 6th Annual School Wellness Poster Contest. Teachers can use this Certificate of Participation to recognize all the students who entered their poster designs in this year's contest. This contest encourages students to create messages that promote the importance of eating nutritious food, participating in at least 60 minutes of physical activity, and getting sufficient sleep each day. To learn more about school wellness, read our Wellness Policy, see which schools have school wellness council grants, or view tools and resources for wellness in schools.

Winning designs, which champion healthy minds and bodies in schools, will be displayed on posters in schools citywide and in other documents used to increase awareness of School Wellness, including a colorful calendar.
