2015 Award Recipient: Fulda High School

ACI would like to offer a heartfelt congratulations to the 15 students from Fulda High School of Fulda, Minnesota that earned the 2015 Healthy Schools, Healthy People, It’s a SNAP National Award for their "Clean Up Germ City" Campaign.

These fifteen 9th and 10th grade students of the Family and Consumer Science Class were not only studying about child development but also wanted to participate in a service learning project that could potentially benefit others in their community as the cold and flu season neared. Undaunted by the scope of their undertaking, these students created a lesson plan for each grade from elementary to high school that would be both age appropriate and teach the students about proper handwashing hygiene techniques.

In accomplishing this goal, the award recipients enlisted the support of the local newspaper and TV stations, the school website and social media. Again, congratulations Fulda High School for a job very well done!
