Rogers Middle School in St.Louis, Mo., one of last year’s winners, used their grant to build a new school walking path – and got a visit from the St. Louis Rams!

To participate, just register your school here. You’ll then be redirected to the NFL site where you’ll be prompted to answer three easy essay questions about how your school celebrates football season, how it runs physical education classes and how it teaches the importance of staying active and healthy living.

In addition to the $10,000 grants, each winning school will also get a PLAY 60 Super School visit, which includes a visit to your school by one or more NFL players.

Last year, 34 schools across the country won $10,000 health and wellness grants and they found some very cool ways to put that money to use, like building walking paths, student fitness rooms, and, in one case, a yogurt breakfast bar. To find out more about these winning projects, check out our grant projects gallery.

If your school would like celebration ideas, download our Back to Football Idea Guide for help in setting up a special football-themed activity or event.

The 2012 NFL Play 60 Super School Contest registration deadline is September 14 and the NFL is expected to announce the winners in October. So, imagine the fabulous things that you could do with the $10,000 grant and register now!
