DHEC accepting All-Health Team award applications
COLUMBIA, S.C. – The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control's All-Health Team is now accepting applications for its 2010-2011 season, the agency announced today.
"The All-Health Team provides a great opportunity for young people to be recognized for promoting health and wellness in their school and community," said Joann Minder, the All-Health Team's program manager. "Their involvement in health and wellness increases the likelihood of them carrying these practices into adulthood.
"Applications should be received by the first of each month to be considered during that month," Minder said. "Applications received after the first will be considered for the following month."
According to Minder, monthly winners are awarded a prominent position on the All-Health Team website and a promotional spot about the project is shown on WIS-TV.
All-Health Team was established in 2003. It is sponsored by Blue Cross-Blue Shield of South Carolina, WIS-TV and DHEC. For more information, visit DHEC's All-Health Team website at: http://www.scdhec.gov/allhealth or call (803) 545-4501.
