National PTA will award 25 Healthy Lifestyles Energy Balance 101 Grants of $2,000 each to local PTAs for family education events targeting grades PreK-5 (or schools with grades K-5 such as Pre-K- 8/Pre-K-12). Title I schools are strongly encouraged to apply. The deadline for applying is Friday, June 28, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. EDT/2:00 p.m. PDT.
National PTA’s Healthy Lifestyles Energy Balance 101 Grant focuses on an everyday healthy lifestyle practice known as energy balance. Energy balance is simply finding a balance between the calories we consume and the calories we burn.
These grants are funded by the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, through its Together Counts™ program. For more information and to apply, go to http://www.pta.org/programs/content.cfm?ItemNumber=3655.
