America’s Healthiest Schools is Healthier Generation’s prestigious annual recognition program that honors schools for implementing best practices to support the physical, mental, and social-emotional health needs of the learning community.
Awardees must meet criteria in the Thriving Schools Integrated Assessment, an evidence-informed tool that helps schools identify strengths and opportunities for improving policies and practices to advance health and learning with an integrated approach.
Schools that achieve recognition in all nine topic areas are designated All-Star Schools.
Schools function best when students and educators are happy and healthy. Earning an America’s Healthiest Schools recognition indicates that your school is a leader in school health. Previous awardees have received a multitude of benefits, including:
School teams may apply in the Healthier Generation Action Center.
All applications are due no later than April 18, 2023. Applications must be complete in order to be submitted for consideration.
Any K-12 public or private school in the United States is eligible to apply for recognition as one of America’s Healthiest Schools—including elementary, middle, and high schools. Any school, regardless of earlier awards achieved, can apply for a 2023 award.
To receive an award, schools must have all criteria in a single topic area fully in place during the 2022-23 school year before the submission deadline.
