Get Ready NEISD- The It’s Time Texas Community Challenge is Coming!!

NEISD is excited to join over 20,000 Texans across 300 communities throughout Texas to compete in the 2023 It’s Time Texas Community Challenge. This eight-week, statewide health competition serves as a fun, free way for us to prioritize our health while going head-to-head against nearby school districts (and other campuses in NEISD), while demonstrating our commitment to health! But we can’t do it alone; we need all-hands-on-deck to have a chance to win! NEISD won the challenge in 2021 and it’s time to bring the banner back home! Keep reading for more information regarding the Challenge and how to jump start earning points!

 

What is the Community Challenge?

  • An easy way to kick off the New Year with simple healthy habits while being a part of something that impacts more than just you.
  • From Jan. 9 to March 5, simply report daily healthy habits such as drinking water, going for a walk, and eating a healthy snack in the Community Challenge App and earn points.
  • At the end of the competition, the top individuals, school districts, organizations, and communities will win prizes, be recognized, and earn bragging rights until 2024! This year, the NEISD PE & Health Department will also recognize the top school for each division: elementary, middle, and high school.
