Hillcrest Elementary

It's easy to become a Gold Medal School!!!

Most of the schools report that they are doing most, if not all, of the Bronze criteria already, including:

  • A policy requiring 90 minutes of structured physical activity each week
  • Teach the Health Education Core Curriculum
  • Establish a Gold Medal Mile around school grounds with a goal for student participation
  • A policy promoting Safe Routes to School
  • A policy mandating a Tobacco-Free School
  • Complete the Utah School Heart Health Surveys

Just for completing these criteria your school will earn $200 to be used for physical activity, nutrition, or tobacco prevention resources.

You can achieve just the Bronze level, or move onto any of the other levels and earn more $ at each level... It's up to you!
