What is the MO Project contest?

MO Project is a contest about a movement. Affordable, healthy food and safe & accessible areas for physical activity are scarce in many places. That's why California is building a movement and we want to hear from the youth! With funding from the California Endowment and Kaiser Permanente (Southern CA), CANFIT produced MO Project- a statewide online media contest for youth ages 13 - 18 who want to make a difference. Youth made videos, posters or spoken word pieces about what they wanted MOre of to improve the health of their community (i.e. change your school or after school food, start a farmer's market, improve a park, eliminate junk food advertising). Watch the winning videos from MO Project Round 1 and Round 2 below. During the contest, CANFIT lead 8 regional MO Project Youth Convenings across the state of California. See where MO Project went.
