The Scale Back Alabama School program is an additional component of Scale Back Alabama that gives school personnel the opportunity to be healthy role models for their students, and for the school to be entered into a drawing to possibly win nutrition and physical activity-oriented prizes.

How To Participate

Scale Back Alabama 2021 is getting started!

Becoming a Scale Back Alabama School is easy!

  • Sign up to be a coordinator for Scale Back Alabama! Your school will need a coordinator to get started.
  • All schools (K-12) participating in Scale Back Alabama will automatically be enrolled in the Scale Back Alabama School program. Students are not allowed to participate and weight loss for students is not being encouraged.
  • Scale Back Alabama Schools receive special recognition and are entered into a school drawing for prizes that promote good nutrition and physical activity habits for the students. These prizes are in addition to individual drawings for prizes. View Past Winners.
