teachers: win a grant to kick-start healthier eating at school


We’ve posted before about the sometimes dire state of school lunches, so this contest caught our eye: The American Egg Board and egg farmers have partnered with Scholastic to launch the Good Egg Project Back to Breakfast Teacher Challenge. In short, if you’re a teacher who writes a winning essay about how breakfast can improve achievement, attentiveness, and attendance in the classroom, your school will receive a $5,000 grant to help get lunchroom offerings on a healthier track. But the deadline is coming up fast: Monday, May 17. Visit Scholastic for contest details.
