Fuel up to Play 60 supports nationally recommended standards for health and physical education/physical activity–including National Health Education Standards, National Standards for Physical Education and the Guidelines for Physical Activity for Children 5-12. The program also helps schools meet their wellness goals and complements national initiatives–including the White House’s Let’s Move! Campaign, the U.S. National Physical Activity Plan, the USDA’s HealthierUS School Challenge and the CDC’s Coordinated School Health Program.
There are lots of ways to get rewarded and receive incentives throughout the school year, just by participating in Fuel Up to Play 60!

Students also receive rewards and recognition for their efforts.
