Vermont Schools Fighting Obesity!

by Tina Z. on Tuesday, July 8, 2014

The American Heart Association has been working with the statewide coalition Eat Well Play More Vermont (EWPM) to reduce childhood obesity. The EWPM coalition offered the opportunity for schools across Vermont to apply for grants to reduce obesity in their communities and we received a number of great proposals.

The following schools were chosen to receive the first round of grants averaging around $3,000. Click on the links to view the amazing videos schools submitted for their projects!
