DID YOU KNOW?

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.

Childhood obesity has become a growing challenge within our country.  Approximately 380,000 of 1,251,000 Ohio children ages 10-17 years (30.4%) are considered overweight or obese.  This puts Ohio in the #12 slot of the U.S. state’s childhood obesity ranking.

If you are 10 – 14 years of age, we invite you to write a one page essay on why you believe eating healthy and exercising is important.  The essay must be a least one page long, and be written or typed.  Please include your first and last name, address, phone number, age, and school your attend, when submitting the essay.  Please submit your essay to Ms. Cynthia Smith, 301 North 5th Street, Steubenville, OH or to csmith@urbanmission.org.

The deadline to submit the essay is Monday September 1st.

10 winners will be chosen to create and star in a commercial slated to air on WTOV9 in September.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE & CREATE A HEALTHIER FUTURE ONE CHILD AT A TIME!
