Earn Money for Your School
Cincinnati Public Schools is the first school district in the nation to provide opportunities for its students, ages 6 to 12, to experience Clever Crazes for Kids (CCK), a national wellness initiative that combines animated games, valuable information and trivia to motivate students to achieve and maintain healthy lifestyles.
Accessible via the Web site, Clever Crazes for Kids (CCK), the program is designed to be a safe and fun place for young people to learn more about healthy living. You can choose an avatar and compete in four themed environments.
CCK is all about "edu-tainment," and uses interactive computer games that model behaviors essential to healthy physical, mental and emotional development. The games, led by self-selected "avatars," or animated characters, enable students to learn, play and compete in four themed environments: Nutrition, Physical Activity, Self-Esteem and Anti-Bullying, and Green Living.
At the heart of the program is a school competition that awards bi-monthly cash prizes of as much as $5,000 to schools with the highest percentage of participating students, as well as those with the highest-scoring students in CCK's contests. Prizes will be awarded to schools on behalf of participating students. No prizes will be awarded to individuals.
CCK was developed, independently, by the leadership that launched Speaking of Women's Health, a nationally renowned program that educates women to make informed decisions about health, well-being and personal safety for themselves and their families. Designed with similar principles, CCK focuses on helping young children improve their lives.
Students must have parental permission to participate in CCK.
Ways to Earn Prize Money
CCK will award cash prizes on a bi-monthly basis to schools in the following three categories:
- The school with the highest percentage of students participating in CCK
- The school with the student who earns the highest number of points based on trivia and games
Three cash prizes will be awarded for each category as follows:
- 1st-Place: $5,000
- 2nd-Place: $3,000
- 3rd-Place: $2,000
An additional prize of $5,000 will be given bi-monthly to the school whose employee refers the greatest number of new schools within each two-month period.
