The two (2) entry criteria are:
(1) The Collaboration Award: The district who has collaborated with other health care professions to promote the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and the Nutrition Dietetic Technician Registered. The entry should reflect and emphasize a new or unique perspective in nutrition outreach, e.g. topic, presentation, target group, outreach method, etc.
(2) The Community Outreach Award: This will be presented to the district that has reached and is able to document the largest number of participants in program/s for the entire month of March. This award may be challenging yet fun, from helping students grow a community garden, visiting elderly and sharing lunch with them; collecting food for different organizations such as food banks; appearing on a news channel broadcasting the great work the dietetic and nutrition profession provides. There are so many community projects you can reach out to.
Let's make this National Nutrition Month unforgettable!
