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. Each winning district will receive two free registrations for the 2019 Healthier Texas Summit with a travel stipend and one free registration for the 2020 TAHK Summit.
