School Health Advisory Council Awards
An Initiative from the Texas Action for Healthy Kids’ SHAC Leadership Team

We are pleased to announce that for the sixth year It’s Time Texas in partnership with Texas Action for Healthy Kids will be sponsoring the 2019 SHAC Awards. Five school district’s School Health Advisory Councils will be recognized for their efforts in promoting health and wellness for students and staff in their districts.

About the SHAC Awards

Every year, SHAC in Action member organizations select five School Health Advisory Councils from a pool of applicants using a set of criteria including the number of active council members, number of participating students and parents, frequency of meetings, reporting practices, number of issue areas addressed, and accomplishments this school year.

District winners Receive:

Two free registrations for the Healthier Texas Summit October 17-18 in Austin, TX, one for a district representative and one for a parent representative; a travel stipend for the Summit; and one free registration for the 2020 TAHK annual summit. This SHAC Award nomination is part of an initiative from the Texas Action for Healthy Kids’ SHAC Leadership Team, which includes experts from state-level agencies and organizations who are working to help SHACs across Texas.
