CMS Wellness Ambassador Heads To Washington D.C.

Colchester Middle School student Shea Barber left today to participate in the “Fuel Up To Play 60” school wellness conference in Washington D.C. Shea will be our Vermont “ambassador” to a School Leadership wellness roundtable, designed to elicit student perspectives on nutrition and physical activities during the school day. A WCAX clip from this morning’s news can be seen here.

Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Football League (NFL) and National Dairy Council (NDC), which was founded by America’s dairy farmers, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Fuel Up to Play 60 is designed to engage and empower youth to take action for their own health by implementing long-term, positive changes for themselves and their schools.
