Billboards Across Twin Cities Show Benefits of Phy Ed

When you drive around the Twin Cities this month, you might notice some new billboards. As part of the Minnesotans for Healthy Kids media campaign, billboards have been created and placed across the metro area (see above). See posting below for a close-up look at the image.
This media campaign is an attempt to raise awareness around the connection between quality physical education programs and higher academic achievement. With budgets being squeezed, school districts across the state are cutting physical education programs. However, research has shown that students who participate in quality physical education have higher academic performance.

Keep your eyes open for these awesome billboards!
I-94 and I-394, International Market Square, Minneapolis
4th Street S, downtown Minneapolis
E Hennepin and 5th Ave. N, downtown Minneapolis
35E and Maryland Ave., St. Paul
E 7th Street N, downtown St Paul
