Billings Family YMCA
Health and Wellness Superstar Award
The Billings Family YMCA in partnership with the Billings Clinic, Billings Gazette and the Billings Public School Health Advisory Council created a recognition program to honor our outstanding educators.
Health and wellness goes beyond physical activity. That is why the Billings Family YMCA is expanding the Superstar Award to recognize those members of our school community who go out of their way to improve students’ health and academic achievement through physical activity, nutrition education and emotional well-being. We would like to honor individuals who create an environment that is conducive to forming healthy life-long habits. There is mounting evidence that daily physical activity, nutrition and social and emotional wellness has a positive impact on student academic performance.
We invite school administrators, teachers, students and parents to submit nominations. Billings Clinic will provide the recipient with a $100 grant to be used for supplies or programs that enhance physical activity, nutrition and/or emotional wellness in their school. A winner will be announced monthly during the school year starting in October.
Educators that go above and beyond the required PE, recess times and assigned curriculum will be considered for this award.
