Let’s Move Pittsburgh offers a mini-grant program that celebrates and rewards schools for leading new or existing programs to improve children's health with the goal of helping every school in Allegheny County become the healthiest place for kids to learn and grow. Champion Schools Award applicants submit programs in the following categories: “Bag the Junk,” for projects that promote healthy food and nutrition education in schools, such as nutrition education classes or initiatives to improve healthy vending options; “Get Kids Moving,” for projects that aim to increase physical activity in schools, such as classroom activity breaks or afterschool fitness clubs; and “Teach Kids to Grow and Cook Food,” for projects that focus on how to grow and prepare healthy food, such as school vegetable gardens or healthy cooking clubs.
