Health Beat: Teen contest promotes healthy breakfasts

High school students across Massachusetts are invited to get creative about school breakfast.

The fourth annual “School Breakfast: Eat. Film. Screen” contest is accepting submissions through Friday, April 4.

Films should be no longer than 30 seconds and must demonstrate why it’s beneficial for teenagers to eat a healthy breakfast at school; include at least one scene in a school cafeteria; be fully created by students; and feature a reimbursable school breakfast meal that contains at least three of the four following categories: milk, meat or meat alternate, vegetable or fruit, and grain.

The winning group will receive a $1,000 gift card for its class. Second and third places get $300 and $200, respectively. Winners will be announced on May 5.

The contest is run by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Child Nutrition Outreach Program and Project Bread.
