Start a child’s day right. Give ‘em Breakfast.
Is there someone in your school or community who has worked tirelessly to ensure students start each and every day with a healthy meal? We want to hear from you! Nominate them to be recognized as a Kentucky School Breakfast Champion.
WHAT IS THE KY SCHOOL BREAKFAST CHALLENGE?
The Kentucky School Breakfast Challenge celebrates and highlights leaders and their schools across the Commonwealth who go above and beyond to make breakfast happen for Kentucky kids.
HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK?
From November 4, 2019 through January 24, 2020, anyone can nominate “breakfast champions” across the Commonwealth. The Class of 2020 Breakfast Champions will be announced during National School Breakfast Week from March 2nd – 6th.
One overall Statewide Breakfast Champion will also be invited to a celebratory event and awarded a grand prize.
WHAT CAN BE WON?
An equipment prize for your school, a celebratory event, a sweet prize pack for the champion, local and statewide recognition, and bragging rights!
WHO CAN NOMINATE SOMEONE?
We welcome nominations from anyone! Do you know someone who is working hard to help feed children in your school? Students, parents, teachers, administrators, school nutrition staff, school counselors or others can nominate someone today simply by filling out the nomination form.
WHO CAN BE NOMINATED?
Champions can be principals, food service directors, cafeteria staff, teachers, custodians, coaches, school counselors, students, parents and bus drivers – the list goes on!
WHY ARE WE CELEBRATING?
Students who eat breakfast show improved academic performance and reduced behavioral problems. Kentucky is performing exceedingly well when it comes to making sure every child is served the most important meal of the day. That’s a huge win for the state.
Help us celebrate by nominating someone who works hard to ensure children in the Commonwealth receive a balanced breakfast!
