ARLINGTON, VA – Last week marked the end of the two-month Check Out MyPlate Video Search for kids, a MyPlate promotional activity launched by USA Rice and six other MyPlate National Strategic Partners to reach children and parents with healthy eating messages.  The video search received more than 10,000 unique visitors and generated more than 100 video entries from kids across the country.

“We challenged kids to submit a video about how they eat healthy using MyPlate and get moving with their favorite physical activity,” said Katie Maher, USA Rice’s manager of domestic promotion.  “This was the first time we hosted a promotion like this and we are very impressed with the engagement we received as well as the quality and creativity of the videos.”

This month, all of the entries will be reviewed and judged by MyPlate and Let’s Move!  There will be one Grand Prize winner ($1,000) and one Runner-Up ($300) for each age category: 2 – 10, 11 – 13, and 14 – 18.  Winners will be announced in early June.

If you’re looking for a good laugh or something to brighten your day, take a look at some of the video entries here.
