Wellness Summit Award Nominations and Session Proposals

This year's Wellness Summit will be held on May 17. The Wellness Summit brings together district and community stakeholders to learn from a keynote speaker, from each other through school-led breakout sessions, and celebrate successes through an award ceremony. If your school is doing great work around the Wellness Policy we want to know! The deadline to submit an application for an award or apply to present a session has been extended ​​to 4/4/17. Please see below for more information about applying!

Excellence in School Wellness Awards:

To be considered for an Excellence in Wellness Award, please complete all sections of this form. You may complete the award application yourself, or someone else may nominate your school for an award. Please do not submit an application based on previously recognized work. Rather, think about what you have accomplished during the 2016-17 school year to enhance school health, create sustainable programs, initiate new models to address aspects of the District Wellness Policy, or tackle challenges that were identified through your Wellness Action Plan.

Present a school-based project during a breakout session:

Consider how your school’s wellness council has successfully implemented one of the focus areas of the Boston Public Schools’ District Wellness Policy. Consider how you might inform, support and provide guidance to other schools through your presentation. Please apply here to describe a program, project, or policy/environmental change that your school’s wellness council has worked on this year.
