Presidential Youth Fitness grants available

Rep. John Ward, DFL–Baxter, is encouraging area schools to apple for Presidential Youth Fitness Program grants.

The Presidential Youth Fitness Program is a free program that includes a health-related fitness assessment, professional development and recognition opportunities to support teachers and empower students to adopt an active lifestyle. The program is providing a funding opportunity, with support from the General Mills Foundation that will provide selected schools with a robust set of resources to enhance their physical education programming.

“The Presidential Youth Fitness Program was recently updated to reflect the latest science and best practices that schools can use to improve student fitness and wellness,” said Rep. Ward.

Applications for the Presidential Youth Fitness Program grants will be accepted online until Jan. 31.
