On Tuesday, Hy-Vee and the Hy-Vee KidsFit division announced it's taking registrants for its 7th annual squat challenge. Schools throughout Hy-Vee's region, including schools in Iowa and Illinois, can now register to participate.

If you're a teacher, a student, or a parent, talk with your school leaders and teachers about signing up your Quad Cities classroom for this challenge. Classrooms in the Quad Cities in both Iowa and Illinois that want to participate must register as a Hy-Vee KidsFit School Wellness Club first and then can register online for the squat challenge here.


Hy-Vee KidsFit officials say the top 10 classrooms to participate in the Squat Challenge will receive a durable recycled-park bench, garden supplies, and 120 different seed packs to beautify their school space, dietitian-approved snacks, healthy drinks, KidsFit tote bags for their entire school, and exclusive KidsFit assembly.

Registration closes on Friday, January 27th, and schools can start the challenge Monday, January 30th. Schools will then schedule five days in February to count their classroom squats. Total squats must be completed by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 24th to be eligible to win.

The classroom with the highest average squats per student will be notified by Monday, Feb. 27 by 5:00 p.m. Schools participating in the Hy-Vee KidsFit Squat Challenge must be located within a 60-mile radius of a Hy-Vee store.

Hy-Vee KidsFit offers educational and video resources as well as dietitian-approved snack ideas to help kids stay active and healthy. All families can join the free Hy-Vee KidsFit Club to complete monthly challenges and earn prizes to help make healthy choices easy, fun, and rewarding. To learn more, visit www.hy-veekidsfit.com.
