A “Show Your Spirit Scoreboard” was posted at Nebo (Utah) School District’s Cherry Creek Elementary to record NSLW par-ticipation each day. NSLW represented the “home team,” while a previous week’s lunch count was posted as the “visitor.” The week concluded with the “home team” winning by nearly 200 points! Humboldt (Ariz.) Unifi ed School District’s Child Nutrition department introduced the “How will a new bike help me to be a better student” Essay Contest at Bradshaw Mountain High School. It was a special NSLW activity for a chance for students to win one of fi ve new bicycles! OPPOSITE PAGE: St. Patrick (Pa.) School gave students a special activity each day of NSLW, such as a vote on healthy versus unhealthy meals, suggest new menu items and participate in taste tests. One activity, “Guess the Herb,” was a great way to expand students’ fl avor palate. Every time students purchased a lunch, their class earned a vote to win a “veggie train” (see picture, opposite) on the last day of NSLW. TM A positive spirit will be a key ingredient in promoting the #NSLW17 theme, School Lunch: Recipes for Success. Learn more on page 54. www.schoolnutrition.org | SN | 69
