May 14, 2013 – Three lucky SNA members won complimentary registrations to attend SNA’s Annual National Conference (ANC) in Kansas City, Mo. The winners are:

  • Sharon Stucki, Director, Washington School District, UT
  • Joni Nienas, Cook’s Helper, Los Lunas Schools, NM
  • Connie Green, Manager, Warren County Schools, KY

These members were picked as winners in the 2013 ANC sweepstakes. The sweepstakes asked SNA members to submit an online response to the question, “Why Do You ♥ School Nutrition?” Members that responded by April 30 were automatically entered into a random prize drawing to win a free ANC conference registration.

SNA received a high volume of heartfelt, dynamic and passionate responses. Members detailed their love of impacting childrens’ lives, serving healthy recipes, creating lifelong friendships with coworkers, and much more.
