Recognizing Excellence in Nutrition and Physical Activity
The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary certification initiative recognizing those schools enrolled in Team Nutrition that have created healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.
In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Let’s Move!, incorporating HUSSC into her campaign to raise a healthier generation of kids. At that time, monetary incentive awards became available for each HUSSC award level: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Gold Award of Distinction.
To date there is only one school in Nevada (Traner Middle School in Washoe County School District) that has applied and received recognition. This challenge encourages people to get involved with their local schools to help them become healthier and help them in becoming an award winning school.
