“This contest was the perfect opportunity to engage teachers, students, and parents across the country in our Power Rangers emPOWER program.”
The National “What emPOWERs You?” Teachers Sweepstakes was part of the Power Rangers in-school program supporting exercise and healthy eating for kids in grades 1-3 nationwide. Materials supporting healthy choices were distributed to more than 130,000 teachers nationally through printed and online distribution. As part of the program, teachers were asked: How do they plan to reinforce healthy choices in the classroom? The winning teacher, Rita Fowler, answered this question about her kindergarten class: “Kindergarten is a great place to start supporting healthy eating and exercise for kids. I talk to my class regularly about healthy eating and encourage active play. The Power Rangers emPOWER program gives me great tools to help inspire my kids to get active and move more.”
“We are excited to present Brentwood Elementary with this donation, as we hope it will inspire kids to maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Elie Dekel, President, Saban Brands. “This contest was the perfect opportunity to engage teachers, students, and parents across the country in our Power Rangers emPOWER program.”
