Youth-led Partnership in Jeffco Creates Healthy Beverage Toolkit for K-12 Students

The Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC) at Jeffco Public Schools partnered with Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) to create a peer-led healthy beverage campaign for K-12 students entitled, “Water: It’s In Your Nature.” The students developed this toolkit of learning activities to parallel the current regional Hidden-Sugar.org campaign from the Healthy Beverage Partnership. 

The campaign toolkit contains four activities: Water Conducts the Brain (eight-minute educational video); Water ‘Bout Me (online hydration calculator); Ready, Set…Water! (interactive Kahoot trivia game); and You Can’t Bottle Creativity (student PSA challenge). These activities have now been integrated into the Jeffco Public Schools curriculum for all teachers. The toolkit is useful for anyone working with the K-12 population to promote water consumption.
