kentucky action for healthy kids

41 Kentucky high schools will soon be receiving grants, but the money won’t be going to teachers or administrators. Students will be deciding how the money is spent.

The program is called Students Taking Charge, which is part of Kentucky Action for Healthy Kids. It distributes $500 grants to schools in the hopes that students will take the reins, explore projects that might improve health and nutrition, and use the funds to implement effective changes.
