As you know, I’m extremely passionate about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and I’m excited to share with you information about an awesome program, the Search for Teen Wellness Leaders. Amway Global is searching for teens across the United States who are taking action and leading the effort to promote wellness among their peers and community.
The contest will award one teen from each of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia for making a positive difference in a major way. Each selected Teen Wellness Leader will receive a $1,000 scholarship, a $1,000 grant for his or her local YMCA AND the chance to be featured in Newsweek.
Do you know a teen wellness leader in your community? Or better yet, are you a teen wellness leader yourself? If so, I strongly encourage you to visit www.inspirewellness.com. The nomination period ends November 16, 2008 at 10 p.m. EST, so get nominating!
I commend all you Teen Wellness Leaders out there for your efforts in spreading positive messages and fighting unhealthy lifestyles. You play a vital role in the future wellness of our nation and serve as exceptional role models for today’s youth. The sooner younger generations learn to cultivate healthy habits and stay fit, the more likely they’ll be healthy and active later in life. Keep up the good work!
