24H, WHAT IS IT?
24h was a three-day challenge for CSF students from grades 8 to 12. Each school sent a team of 3 to 5 students to participate in this project that allowed them to put in place a project in their school with the goal of improving overall health.
The groups of students started by analyzing health results from their schools ( with the results from Middle Years Development Instrument) and then had 24 hours to come up with a solution and a plan of action for their school. At the end of the three days, they presented their projects for a panel of judges.
In addition to the creation of their projects, the students also participated in a variety of workshops about healthy habits and were encouraged to live healthier during the 24 hours (more physical activity, healthy and balanced eating, building healthy relationships, stress management, maximum screen time, sleeping habits, etc.).
The winning team, Sentiers-Alpins/Nelson with their project « Coup d’envoi », won a 500$ prize and the guidance of the CJFCB to put their project in place at their school.
