Heads Up Iowa!

A funding opportunity is coming your way!! And no better time than now with the budget cutbacks schools are facing.

Through our partnership with the Iowa Business Council (IBC), we are offering scholarships to Iowa schools for professional development, program development and equipment. These scholarships will be provided to schools who are ready and willing to make a commitment to the health of Iowa youth by integrating PE4life’s Core Principles. These scholarships may value up to $45,000 for your program (this includes up to $10,000 for equipment!).

The IBC is made up of executives from 20 of the state’s largest business,  university and banking association leaders. They are committed to making Iowa the healthiest state in the country, and by providing funding to schools to implement PE4life’s proven methods of enhancing physical education, it sounds like they are well on their way!  Read Press Release from the IBC.

Learn about the Adopt-A-School Challenge and how to apply for a scholarship by attending the PE4life / IBC Adopt-A-School Challenge Summit on Monday, April 12th at Drake University in Des Moines.

This FREE educational opportunity is open to all Iowa schools and was made possible through funding from the US Department of Education.
