The Let’s Move! Communities on the Move Video Challenge invites faith-based, community, and other non-profit organizations working with children to create short videos (one to three minutes long) highlighting their participation in Let’s Move! and efforts to reverse the trend of childhood obesity. Participating organizations are encouraged to create videos that showcase programs related to Let’s Move Faith and Communities that are creative, effective, sustainable, replicable, and inspirational. Videos should focus on at least one Let’s Move Faith and Communities focus area of activity, including efforts to promote healthy eating, physical activity, and access to healthy, affordable food for children. The goals of the challenge are to:

  • Highlight the work of Let’s Move Faith and Communities and participating organizations in promoting healthy lifestyles for kids
  • Increase participation in faith- and community-based efforts to prevent childhood obesity.

Note: To participate, you must be a faith-based institution, community-based institution, or other non-profit organization, operating at the local or national level, and organized and domiciled in the United States. Each individual appearing in your video must provide a Video Image Release form and the person who created the video must complete a Video Copyright Resease form. For details on eligibility, please review the Official Rules.

Casey’s Comments

I love this challenge, anything that involves movement for kids is good! What do you think? I have heard about Christians who were against’ yoga, as they thought it conflicted with their religion, was refreshed to see this, yet another spin on yoga and movement..  To me yoga is all good, for everyone, regardless of race, sex, age, creed or religion. Different strokes for different folks. Share your thoughts in the comments below. 😉

Namaste and Play
