SULLIVAN 180 PROGRAM:

Empowering a Healthier Generation
(Sullivan County School Award Program)

*Although the Empowering a Healthier Generation Sullivan County School Award Program has been put on-hold due to COVID-19, Sullivan 180 is working diligently to create a new 2021 timeline for this program and we look forward to continuing our work promoting health and wellness among Sullivan County students, staff, parents and their communities.

  • The purpose of the Empowering a Healthier Generation School Award Program is to engage Sullivan County School Districts in promoting health and wellness among students, staff, parents and their communities.
  • The Empowering a Healthier Generation School Award Program is a means to incentivize schools to become more active in promoting health and wellness. The goal is to bring more funding into schools, empower children to become healthier and encourage parent and community engagement.
  • All nine Sullivan County school districts will be invited to submit an application to participate in the Empowering a Healthier Generation School Award Program. Each school district’s application will include a description of programs and initiatives the district plans to implement in the 2020-21 academic year. A review panel will select up to five school districts to participate in the competition over the 2020-21 academic year.
  • The following categories of health and wellness initiatives, programs and activities will be considered in reviewing the initial applications and judging for the final awards: 1) Policy and Environment; 2) Physical health and wellbeing including healthy eating and physical fitness; 3) Emotional, Social and Mental Health; 4) Employee Wellness; 5) Parental and Community Engagement
  • The five school districts selected to participate in the Empowering a Healthier Generation School Award program are eligible for the following resources:
    • Sullivan Renaissance Healthy Community Initiative Grants – up to $5,000 for the purpose of programs or projects that advance a districts wellness policy or initiatives.
    • Technical Assistance – the five school districts selected will receive ongoing support and technical assistance from Sullivan 180, Catskill Regional Medical Center, Catholic Charities, Cornell Cooperative Extension, PRASAD, Public Health, Sullivan Renaissance and others to help them implement proposed activities.
  • In spring 2021, the participating school districts will submit reports of their accomplishments. Judges from outside of Sullivan County with experience in academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement will review the reports, make site visits to the school districts and select winners.
  • Sullivan 180, in conjunction with New York State Senator Jen Metzger, will award monetary prizes for the top school or schools. Currently, a $200,000 grant secured by Senator Metzger is available for the top award. We hope to secure more funding for additional awards for school and children’s quest for good health.
