Students Win Cash Awards at Healthy Lifestyles Business Competition

November 6, 2014

Six Moorestown Friends School students participated in the University of the Sciences’ 5th Annual Healthy Lifestyles Competition, which culminated with presentations on Saturday, November 1 in Philadelphia.

The team of seniors Megan Le, Luke Shaffer, and Aliya Williams won second prize for their entry titled “Snack Swap Challenge.” The three shared a $1,000 cash award.

Senior Jackie Sackstein’s entry, “To the Beat of the Bench Press,” won fourth place ($250 cash award).

Also competing were seniors Hannah Creighton and Chelsey Flax.

Competitors were posed with the question: How would you convince people to make healthy lifestyle decisions? They were then charged with creating a social media campaign which they presented to judges on Saturday. The entries were judged on creativity/originality; understanding the target audience; social media strategy; presentation skills; and social media campaign materials.
