Dairy producers have an opportunity to show their enthusiasm for the dairy industry, Fuel Up to Play 60 and the National Football League during the third annual Show Your Pride producer photo contest, which is sponsored by the dairy checkoff.
Producers can capture their passion and creativity in a photo for the chance to win a visit to their dairy farm from an NFL player. Producers can direct questions and submit photos through Sept. 14 to Scott Wallin at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Fuel Up to Play 60, developed by the National Dairy Council® in partnership with the NFL and in collaboration with the USDA, encourages students to consume nutrient-rich foods (including low-fat and fat-free dairy) and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. More than 70,000 U.S. schools participate in FUTP 60.
Since its launch in 2009, data shows that schools are making progress in promoting healthier eating habits – including the consumption of dairy – and increasing physical activity among students. Nearly 7.5 million students nationwide are actively involved in the program by helping to plan, lead, implement or participate in peer-to-peer promotions, events and in-school change strategies.
