Yesterday we were thrilled to send acceptance letters to over 6,600 classrooms for our free UNICEF Kid Power school program! What does that mean?

  • It means more than 170,000 kids in 49 states will get free fitness wristbands.
  • It means these 170,000 kids from nearly 2,000 different cities will be empowered to start getting active and earning points with their Kid Power Bands beginning March 1, 2017.
  • It means these 170,000 students in grades 3-8 will be learning valuable lessons about global citizenship while saving lives of severely malnourished children all over the world.

It’s all incredibly exciting, don’t you think?!

We wish we could have accepted every school application. The good news is that teachers who are interested in doing UNICEF Kid Power can still join by purchasing a classroom kit in the online Scholastic Teacher Store. (Tip: Here are 3 ways to fund your classroom kit with help from others!)

We can hardly wait for spring 2017 to have over 170,000 kids and 6,000 dedicated teachers join our UNICEF Kid Power Team!
