Encouraging Students

Skip 3

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 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.

Need a little help identifying sources to support the purchase of student recognition items?  Check out the PYFP Fundraising Tips.
