Capture Our Hearts – AND a Free Trip!


LAC 2019 Sweepstakes

Use a camera to capture our hearts (and your love of schools meals) and you’ll be entered to win a free trip for two to the 2019 Legislative Action Conference (LAC) held in Washington, D.C. from February 23-26, 2019! All you have to do is speak the truth: demonstrate, for a 30- to 60- second video, how school meals make a positive difference in your community, school or district.

Here are some ideas:

  • Ask your RD or cafeteria manager to talk about how school meals are nutritionally balanced while filming the healthy options available in the cafeteria.
  • Discuss the financial needs of students in your community and how school meals ensure those children have the nutrition they need to succeed.
  • Show how your Harvest of the Month, Farm to School or nutrition education initiatives are fostering healthier habits for students.
  • Film a principal talking about how school meals are an important part of the school day.
  • Ask a student about trying a new fruit or vegetable for the first time at school.
  • Film a student talking about what school meals mean to them.
  • Ask a teacher to discuss how your school breakfast program is keeping students more alert in class.
  • Interview your student advisory team on why they are involved in the school meal program.
  • Have a PTA member talk about how healthy school meals help busy families.

If you’re still in need of some inspiration, check out the instructional (and smile-inducing) video created by SNA’s own Hailey Frye, Government Affairs & Media Relations Coordinator.

To enter, email your video to either OR fill out the online entry form. Another new change to this year’s contest? SNA members (that means you!) will cast votes for one of two finalists posted on to decide the winner. All video submissions are due by Wednesday, November 14. For all the details, contest rules and more, visit the official LAC Sweepstake page.
