America's egg farmers are lending a helping hand to elementary schools nationwide with the "Be a Good Egg Contest" and a $5,000 grant top prize, the American Egg Board has announced.
The contest is part of The Good Egg Project: Education Station program with Discovery Education, which provides digital resources to K-12 classrooms designed to teach children how eggs go from farm-to-table, the benefits of high-quality protein in a healthy diet and community service.
Elementary school teachers, students and members of the community, including parents, are encouraged to participate by taking a short online "quiz." The school with the most completed quizzes will receive a $5,000 grant to put toward a health or nutrition initiative along with a donation to a local food bank in their school's name. Five runners-up will receive a $1,000 educational grant.
The contest runs through Nov. 15. The quiz and contest entry can be accessed at http://educationstation.discoveryeducation.com/homeSweepstakes.cfm.
