Lovettsville Elementary Students Organize a Community Fuel Up to Play 60 Booth

Students at Lovettsville Elementary in Loudoun County, VA organized and ran a Fuel Up to Play 60 informational booth at the Town's Annual Oktoberfest Street Fair. Students led the way by planning the purpose of the booth, how to attract visitors, what games and prizes visitors could win and how they could share what they are doing at school involving the Fuel up to Play 60 program. Students collected data on how many visitors they engaged. They tracked the fact that 650 stickers were given away throughout the day as a means of counting how many people stopped at the booth. One student even organized a raffle to give away 3 MyPlate board games. The students even organized a schedule of who was running which game and when to switch. It was a huge success. We plan to do it again next year.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished the goal of informing our community and surrounding areas about what Fuel Up to Play 60 is, how it is helping our students and school, and how other schools can get involved too.
