Dairy Max Rewards Okeene with Super Bowl Champion Player Visit
Okeene Public Schools won several Fuel Up to Play 60 awards including a visit to their school March 14th by Baltimore Raven and NFL Super Bowl Champion Billy Bajema. Highlights included:

The Student Pledge Drive encouraged students and Program Advisors to take the pledge to eat healthy and play for 60 minutes each day (and get their friends to do the same). Okeene had 210 students and teachers take the pledge, and their banner hangs in the school hallway as a reminder to the students.

· Melissa Powell, School Nurse housed in the Blaine County Health Department, has been named as Oklahoma's Fuel Up to Play 60 Program Advisor of the Year. Powell says "her primary focus for school health is from a prevention standpoint. The message of Fuel Up to Play 60 is simple but effective. Eat healthy and be active for at least 60 minutes each day and your health will be better for it." Powell has helped Okeene receive grant funds, win challenges, and empower students through Fuel Up to Play 60.

The Super Bowl Breakfast Challenge encouraged students to submit their best idea for a delicious oatmeal breakfast their friends and classmates would love. Kelsi and Kristi Burghardt won this challenge with Colt's Kickin Oatmeal Berry Smoothie.

· Fuel Up to Play 60 funds check for $2,950 designated for several healthy eating plays like Cafeteria Culture, Recipe Contest, Taste Test Days and physical activity plays called In-Class Activity Breaks, Make a Case for Quality PE, and You'll Love Yoga.

A series of nationwide Challenges are held throughout the year, providing an opportunity for students to collaborate with their peers to showcase what they have learned about "fueling up" with nutrient-rich foods and getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. Students and teachers can view other schools' Challenge submissions and get involved with the program by visiting www.FuelUpToPlay60.com.
