CAN YOU HELP US FIND OUR NEXT DEFENDER OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AWARD WINNER? BOKS TO AWARD $10,000 TO EXEMPLARY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PROGRAM
It’s that time of year again. The BOKS team is on the hunt for an exceptional BOKS program to award our Defenders of Physical Activity Award. Each year, we call for nominations from all of our participating U.S. BOKS schools and youth organizations to help us find one program that stands out for its efforts to get kids active and we reward them with a $10,000 grant. That’s right, $10,000!
Anyone running BOKS at a school or youth organization is eligible to apply. Tell us which BOKS resource(s) you are using and how they are creating a positive impact in your community. If your program is chosen, your school or youth organization will be the recipient of an unrestricted $10,000 grant to help amplify your health and wellness efforts in your community.
The winner of the Fall 2021 BOKS Defenders of Physical Activity will receive:
A $10,000 grant for your school or youth organization;
A BOKS “Defender of Physical Activity” Trophy;
BOKS “Defender of Physical Activity” T-shirts for all BOKS trainers and participating students (up to 100);
BOKS “Defender of Physical Activity” medals for all participating students (up to 100);
Press release template for school to share with local media.
