Northridge High School of Middlebury, IN, was chosen as the winner of the 2012 Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit contest. They beat out hundreds of schools and will receive the $25,000 grant to improve their health and fitness education program.
Northridge school officials say they are continuously searching for ways to improve its education programs, and with the recent addition of a 26-mile bicycle trail nearby, the possibilities to enhance Northridge High’s fitness program are endless. Now, the school has a chance to make these possibilities come to life, as Northridge High has been chosen to receive $25,000 through the Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit program.
Henkel, the company behind some of the nation’s leading brands, including Dial®, Purex®, Right Guard® and Soft Scrub®, launched its annual Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit program which awards one deserving school with $25,000 to enhance its students’ health and fitness education. Five finalists created a brief video that brought to life the health and fitness issues facing its school and its plan for implementing the $25,000 prize. Northridge High School was chosen as the Henkel Helps Get Kids Fit 2012 winner, which was determined by a public voting process in November during which schools, communities and families were encouraged to rally support for their school.
