Students at 32 Boston schools are creatively expressing themselves in a School Breakfast Poster Contest this week (Nov 12-16), using the themes:  “My Favorite Breakfast” or “How I Feel When I Have Had a Really Good Breakfast”.

The Contest is supported through a Fuel Up to Play 60 grant which was awarded to Boston Public Schools to increase student participation in eating healthy breakfasts.  The goal of the Contest is to build interest among students to eat breakfast at school, especially this year, which is the first time that school breakfast is free to all Boston students.

For the Contest, students receive entry forms, color pencils and color markers in their cafeterias to make their posters, any time during the week.  Winning art entries will be awarded gift cards in amounts of $25, $15, and $10.  Additionally, $25 $15 & $10 gift cards will be randomly awarded to students from all entries at each school.  Principals, wellness champions and others in each school are serving as judges.

The School Lunch Boston blog will display the winning entries once the judging is completed!
