Healthy Kids Pitch Competition

Primary and secondary schools are invited to 'pitch' a Healthy Kids project idea with a two-minute video for a chance to win $5,000 to run the project with the students at their school.

Think about how you could get kids moving and eating healthier food at your school, with the aim to:

  • Improve children and young people's health through participation in physical activity and encourage long term behaviour change.
  • Encourage healthy eating and healthy food choices through education and motivation.

The best ideas will be shortlisted and the schools will be invited to present their 'Healthy Kids Pitch' to a selection panel, with winning entries being awarded a prize valued at $5,000.

Applications open Tuesday 12 March 2019 and close Friday 12 April 2019 at 4pm.
