This is the final week to vote in the Win 4 Kids contest! Algoma District School Board’s Brain Boosters program has been selected as one of the 10 national finalists in the Win4Kids contest. Sponsored by GoodLife Kids Foundation, the contest promotes physical activity and awards one $25 thousand dollar national prize to the organization with the most votes.
Good Life Fitness has advised all finalists that there are 5 groups whose votes are so close that just a little more effort could push them into the next prize category. There are 2 groups so close to each other to take over that top spot.
The Algoma District School Board’s submission is for a program called Brain Boosters – an initiative that will take place across 10 pilot schools and potentially every classroom in the Algoma District School Board. Five minute long exercise routines available on DVD will be implemented in Kindergarten to Grade 6 classes. Each Brain Booster session contains unique workouts that kids can follow safely in the comfort of their own classroom.
Win 4 Kids funds will go toward supporting the cost to ensure all ADSB elementary classrooms can utilize the Brain Boosters program and increase students’ physical activity throughout the day. Funds will also help ADSB achieve their ultimate goal of creating their own Canadian DVD series that they will share with school boards across the nation.
“Research indicates that there are strong links between good physical health and good mental health and achievement,” shared ADSB Director of Education Lucia Reece. “Our goal is to get our students active while also engaging in a fun project that can be shared with other districts.”
