Get Involved

This program provides staff and students with opportunities to build healthier school environments by increasing physical activity and developing good eating habits.

Fuel Up To Play 60 is led by students, for students. It all starts when they download the Student Zone App to track activities, participate in challenges, and earn points to achieve Ambassador status. Reach the highest level for a chance to represent Nevada at the national Student Ambassador Summit!

Along with any adult educator or staff at the school, parents can also become Program Advisors (PA).  As a PA, you will recruit student leaders, receive information on local and national contests, and get the latest news on trainings and resources. To get started, work with your student team on activities to implement from the Playbook.

Complete and report all steps in the program on the Fuel Up to Play 60 Dashboard to become a Touchdown School. In the process, student leaders will work with Program Advisors to plan a Kickoff event, rally other students to the cause, and implement nutrition and physical activity plays! 

Incentives are everywhere! School nutrition equipment, prizes, Raiders tickets, player or Raider Rusher school visits, kids’ camps, and autographed footballs are just a few. There’s a bunch of great stuff available to actively participating schools. For qualifying schools, grants are available to help with wellness initiatives. Check out some ideas for using Fuel Up to Play 60 funding.
