|America's egg farmers invite you to learn more about where eggs come from and encourage you to help fight childhood hunger by taking the pledge to eat well and do something good every day. For each pledge, an egg is given to the hungry in America. Go to www.incredibleegg.org/good-egg-project/||
Discovery Education and America's egg farmers are committed to supporting healthy food choices and good nutrition habits, both in-school
and at-home. In the spirit of the partnership, they are thrilled to announce
the "Be a Good Egg Contest!"
The school with the most contest entries wins a $5,000 educational grant for a health or nutrition initiative, and a donation of eggs in the school's name to a local community food bank.
Five runner-up schools will each receive a $1,000 educational grant.
The "Be a Good Egg Contest" is part of the Good Egg Project: Education Station program for elementary schools, which was designed to educate students on the farm-to-table concept and the benefits of a healthy, protein-rich diet. The program provides a variety of educator resources including lesson plans developed for grades 3-5 with adaptations for K-2, educational videos and an archived virtual field trip to an egg farm that illustrates the farm-to-table concept.
Anyone can enter the "Be a Good Egg Contest" once daily through November 15. The schools that receive the most entries will win.*
Enter your school today and encourage your friends, family and community to do so, too!
