Local Schools Receive Awards

(Best Syndication News) Four San Bernardino County schools were awarded a total of $12,000 for their outstanding participation in the 2011 Governor’s Challenge Competition.

“The challenge is much more than just a competition,” said County Supervisor Josie Gonzales. The supervisor allocated money from her discretionary fun to schools in her district to finish strong in the annual statewide competition.

“It motivates our students to eat healthy foods and to be more physically active,” the supervisor tells Best Syndication. “As a result they miss less school, are more attentive in class, do better academically, and feel more positive about themselves and their capabilities.”

The California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, a non-profit organization, sponsors the competition. Anthem, Coca-Cola and CVS are major sponsors of the physical fitness program.

Here is the breakdown of the schools:

Cesar E. Chavez Middle School (San Bernardino) will receive $5,000
Georgia Morris Elementary (Rialto) earned second place and will get $3,000
North Park Elementary (San Bernardino) took third, winning $2,000; and
SOAR Charter Academy (San Bernardino) will receive $2,000.

“By building healthy habits early in life we teach our children how to live longer, more productive, satisfying lives,” Gonzales said.
