Prize:

There are two divisions, 1) Elementary School and 2) Middle and High School.  There will be two winners, one for each division.

The winners will receive three prizes:

  • The winning video will receive a $300 prize for the sponsoring teacher. The teacher prize will be distributed in the form of a check or VISA gift card, depending on the preferences of the winner and the discretion of The Colorado Potato Administrative Committee.
  • The winning class or individual will also receive $300 to be used for a classroom party and/or classroom supplies. The classroom prize will be distributed in the form of a check, paid directly to the winner’s school.
  • The school’s prize will be a donation of a salad bar, distributed through the “Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools” program. The winning school will need to complete and submit the online application at: http://www.saladbars2schools.org/get-a-salad-bar/schools/

Once the application has been accepted, The Colorado Potato Administrative Committee will fulfill the school’s salad bar request for one (1) salad bar.  Any school, public or private, participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is eligible to apply.  If any winner comes from a school that does not participate in the NSLP, they will forfeit the salad bar prize and the other two prizes will still be awarded.
