Ten schools across Saskatchewan are each receiving $10,000 for winning the 10th Anniversary Mosaic Extreme School Makeover Challenge.
The 10 winning projects have goals including expanding breakfast and snack programs, establishing indoor and outdoor gardens, furthering family and community involvement and increasing education about nutrition, cooking, food security, fire safety in the kitchen and Indigenous knowledge.
Together with the Saskatchewan School Boards Association and Breakfast for Learning, The Mosaic Company launched the Extreme School Makeover Challenge in 2006 to encourage grassroots initiatives to improve student nutrition.
Schools from across the province submitted their projects for the 10th Anniversary Mosaic Challenge to compete for a total of $100,000 in prizes.
The schools receiving grants are in Saskatoon, Regina, Melfort, Kelliher, Meadow Lake, Preeceville, North Battleford and the Kahkewistahaw First Nation.
