4-H Accepts Active Lifestyle Goal

Tue, 05 Apr 2011 17:26:06 CDT

4-H Accepts Active Lifestyle Goal 4-H strives to equip young people with the knowledge and skills for healthy living that will prepare them physically, emotionally and socially to meet the challenges of the 21st century. In keeping with that direction, USDA is challenging 100-thousand 4-H members to complete the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award challenge by September 2011. Speaking at the 2011 National 4-H Conference in Chevy Chase, Maryland, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack encouraged all attendees to make healthy choices.

4-H is making this goal a top priority. National 4-H Council and Kraft Foods are offering incentives for each county that sponsors 4-H to encourage local young people to pursue the award. Additionally, during April and May, employees from USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, the parent organization to 4-H National Headquarters, will participate with 4-H members, families and volunteers.

The Presidential Active Lifestyle Award recognizes those who log their recommended physical activity for six consecutive weeks, five days a week (60 minutes for kids, 30 minutes for adults). More information about the program and how to get involved is available here.
