The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) created the Healthy Lifestyle Ambassadors to provide students the opportunity to champion healthy eating and physical activity within their school community. Members of the Healthy Lifestyle Ambassadors Initiative will:
- Promote healthy eating and physical activity among classmates, faculty, staff, and their local community.
- Provide information and feedback to TDA’s Food and Nutrition Division regarding implementation and promotion of Food and Nutrition programs administered by TDA.
An Ambassador shall be a student enrolled in the 4th through 12th grade in a school participating in the National School Lunch Program. Ambassador meetings will be held a minimum of two (2) times each calendar year, but may be held more frequently as determined by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Meetings will be held virtually via the internet or video conferencing technology. At the discretion of TDA, Ambassadors in the Austin area may convene at TDA’s headquarters.
Applications are due on Friday, June 30, 2017.
