Jupiter Elementary First School in Florida to Earn USDA HealthierUS School Challenge Silver Award

Jupiter Elementary School in Brevard County is the first school in Florida to earn the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) HealthierUS School Challenge Silver Award. The Silver Award, one of the USDA's highest, has been bestowed upon 34 schools in the nation.

The HealthierUS School Challenge was developed in support of President Bush’s HealthierUS Initiative. This initiative helps Americans take steps to improve personal health and fitness and encourages all Americans, including children, to be physically active every day, eat a nutritious diet, get preventive screening and make healthy choices.
