Kids thrive on praise. Sprinkle phrases like “Good job!” “Way to go!” and “You can do it, I know you can!” throughout your day to students who are making behavior changes—because this kind of encouragement builds self-confidence and gets results.
At the President’s Challenge, we’ve taken this principle to heart. We offer a range of awards to recognize students who take the Physical Fitness Test,* as well as awards for those who make physical activity and healthy eating a part of their everyday lives. We believe you shouldn’t have to be a P.E. prodigy to get some recognition. For more information about physical activity guidelines check out the Youth Physical Activity Guidelines toolkit.
* The Physical Fitness Test will no longer be available after the 2012–2013 school year. Get up to speed with the new health-based assessment from the Presidential Youth Fitness Program now!
