We are excited to help spread the word on the USDA Fruits and Vegetables Video contest. We think it’s going to be a great way to get good advice from teachers, parents, health care professionals – maybe even kids about how they are eating more fruits and vegetables and how they are doing it affordably.
The deadline to submit a video is November 15. You can get more details from the Challenge.gov web site…
About The Challenge
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) MyPlate Fruits and Veggies Video Challenge invites you to create short videos (approximately 30 seconds) showing how you’re adding fruits and vegetables to your diet without spending a lot of money. We encourage you to create videos that are inspiring and instructive — show a healthy tip that has worked for you and that you think can work for other people. Videos must be submitted in one of the following categories:
- Tips for kids
- Tips when eating at home
- Tips when eating away from home
The goal of the challenge is to encourage healthy eating habits and raise awareness around USDA’s MyPlate dietary guidelines, which includes making half your plate fruits and vegetables.
If you haven’t checked out the Challenge.gov web site before – this is a great opportunity. They host contests and opportunities in a range of industries on a regular basis.
