2019 IT’S TIME TEXAS COMMUNITY CHALLENGE

2019

What is the Community Challenge?

The IT’S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge is a statewide free, fun healthy living competition that helps you create healthy habits. Earn points for your city or town simply by making healthier choices. The winning communities will receive funds to put toward future community health efforts.

How Does the Challenge Work?

Individuals, families, schools, businesses, organizations, mayors and community leaders can earn points for their city or town.

To get started, go to www.ittcommunitychallenge.com to register and select your community. This quick step will earn you an easy 500 points to kick off the challenge. From there, complete and log healthy activities to earn points through March 3, 2019.

Individuals 

You as an individual earn points by tracking physical activity and weight, watching a video about healthy living, hosting community events and taking healthy selfies. The selfies, worth 200 points each, simply show you participating in healthy activities or eating healthy

Mayors and City Officials 

Your community leaders also play a huge role in the effort. The mayor’s pledge to participate is worth 10,000 points while the city council version earns 2,500 points. There are several more ways for city representatives to earn points, including creating a mayor’s challenge video, hosting community events and establishing a health collaborative.

School Staff and Faculty

School representatives can earn points for their city AND school district! Thousands of points are available for school boards, principals and teachers who sign pledges to participate. Healthy lesson plans and staff activities also earn points.

College Students, Staff and Faculty

Tracking weight and physical activity, hosting events and taking healthy selfies are some of the collegiate ways to earn points.

Employers

Signing a pledge and organizing healthy workplace events are ways for employers to earn points in the Challenge.
