The junk food industry wants YOU to buy more, eat more and to tell your parents to come back for MORE JUNK. These companies spend billions of dollars marketing unhealthy products to “young customers” like you, while childhood obesity and other diet related illnesses are on the rise.

When was the last time YOU saw a commercial or heard a jingle promoting fresh fruits and vegetables? Help the BPS Farm to School Initiative give the healthy choice a voice by entering this year’s contest!

Food and Nutrition Services is launching the second annual Give the Healthy Choice a Voice contest.  Last year we held a poster contest and received over 200 submissions from BPS students (thanks to all of our artists!).  This year we are looking for 30-90 second commercials, songs/jingles, or public service announcements that promote the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables and healthy food choices in general.

All BPS students are welcome to participate! Click here for contest rules, guidelines and entry form.

Deadline for all submissions: Friday, April 13th, 2012 at 5pm

Prizes will be presented to the top three video submissions and the top three audio submissions at an award ceremony in late May/early June!

If you have any questions please contact Kim Szeto, BPS Farm to School Coordinator at kszeto[at]boston.k12.ma.us for more information.
