California School Districts Vie for $40,000 in Prizes in got milk? Breakfast Challenge

Individual students can win up to $1000 via social media

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the creator of got milk?, has partnered with 15 school districts across the Golden State to present its seventh annual Breakfast Challenge to launch the new school year and remind students to fuel up with the most important meal of the day. Studies have shown that eating breakfast helps students do better in mathematics and school overall. Breakfast also boosts vitamin intake, helping increase energy and focus.1 The Breakfast Challenge, which runs from August to October, encourages daily breakfast consumption with milk at school through a friendly competition between school districts. The school in each district (or group of districts) with the greatest increase in breakfast participation will win $3,000 towards student activities.

Thomas Downey High School students and milkman Principal Baum from Modesto have breakfast eating contest as part of the 2013 got milk? Breakfast Challenge kickoff.

"Research shows that students who eat a healthy breakfast are more attentive in the classroom and do better in school," says registered dietitian, Dr. Wendy Bazilian. "And feeding our students breakfast with milk is key to supporting their success."

The 15 participating high school districts in the 2014 got milk? Breakfast Challenge are:

  • Northern California: Oakland Unified, Sacramento City Unified, Stockton Unified and Modesto City Schools
  • Central California: Fresno Unified, Central Unified and Clovis Unified
  • Southern California: Huntington Beach Union, Santa Ana Unified, Fontana Unified, Palm Springs Unified, Coachella Valley Unified, Desert Sands Unified, Sweetwater Union and Vista Unified

During the three-week challenge period, each participating campus aims to encourage its students to eat breakfast with milk at school and track the participation results. At the end of the three weeks, the campus with the greatest increase in breakfast participation in its district will win $3,000

"We want to make eating breakfast fun while inspiring young people to form healthy habits," says Steve James, executive director of the CMPB. "This challenge allows rival schools to compete against each other, while instilling the messages of proper nutrition with milk."

This year got milk? has included another opportunity for California teens ages 13 to 18 to participate in the Breakfast Challenge via social media. Got milk? wants students to post pictures of their breakfast with milk either on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag the image using the hashtag #gotmilkinmybreakfast. At the end of contest, three winners will be selected from the photos with the most likes on the Facebook contest page. The Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000 and two runners-up will each receive a $200 store gift card.

About the CMPB
The California Milk Processor Board was established in 1993 to make milk more competitive and increase milk consumption in California. Awareness of got milk? is over 90% nationally and it is considered one of the most important and successful campaigns in history. Got milk? is a federally registered trademark that has been licensed by the national dairy boards since 1995. The CMPB's Spanish-language campaign began in 1994 using the tagline "Familia, Amor y Leche" (Family, Love and Milk).
