Fruits and Veggies to the Rescue! The Child Nutrition Department Announces Winners of the Superhero Fruit & Veggie Contest
Posted on 03/19/2014
Hosted by the Child Nutrition Department, over 100 students participated in the district’s first ever Superhero Fruit and Veggie Contest. From mega apples to caped carrots, contestants tapped into their creative super powers to design healthy artwork and rescue diets across the district.

Students, parents and staff were asked to participate in a unique voting process to help determine the winners a week before Spring Break. Over 24,000 voters browsed through all the photos on the district’s Facebook page and selected their top six favorite art pieces by liking the photos. After the competition ended, the child nutrition department tallied up all the votes and announced the winners.

First place goes to Michelle Lozano of Jessup Elementary for her carrot superhero. Second place goes to Henneisy Quiroz of Jessup Elementary and third place goes to Luis A. Perez of Freeman Elementary. The top three winners will receive a prize and have their superheroes in the next cafeteria calendar for the district. Here are all 12 winners of the 2014 Superhero Fruit and Veggie Contest:
