Get In The Game With School Lunch
Jackson County School Nutrition Department and Tanger Outlets are pleased to announce the 2014 Jackson County School Lunch Program Essay Contest. “Get In The Game with School Lunch” is this year’s National School Lunch Program theme. Nearly 32 million children eat school lunch every school day; the federally funded program provides nutritionally balanced low-cost and free meals to students. The program requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards. In collaboration with Tanger Outlets, Jackson County School Nutrition Department is sponsoring a writing contest for students of all grade levels. Students will have an opportunity to write an essay describing how school lunch helps them to “get into the game”.
Students may submit one essay on the topic “Get in the Game with School Lunch” at their grade level of competition. Each writing entry must be accompanied by an Entry Form. Essays are due to cafeteria managers by October 24, 2014. Three students from each building will be announced as winners. See your cafeteria manager for an entry form.
