Attention budding high school directors! Project Bread and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education are excited to announce the launch of the School Breakfast: Eat. Film. Screen. school breakfast video contest, just in time for National School Breakfast Week.
High school students across Massachusetts are invited to submit a 30-second video promoting the school breakfast program and encouraging peers to eat a healthy school breakfast. The contest, which is designed to encourage high school students participation in school breakfast, gives students a unique and creative outlet for expressing the importance of a healthy breakfast. The goal is for teens to find a way to persuade their peers to give up doughnuts and java for a real breakfast that promotes learning by giving healthy food a “cool factor.”
There will be a 60-day submission period for the 30-second videos from Monday, March 7, 2011, to Friday, May 6, 2011. Submissions can be entered by individual students, by small groups of students, or as a class. The winning 30-second video will be featured as part of community programming on WHDH-TV, in addition to other great prizes.
