Torrington Public Schools New Year/New You Poster Contest
Fit Together is collaborating with Torrington Public Schools to offer a New Year/New You poster contest to all students. Students can draw or create a digital poster with a health and wellness theme to align with Fit Together’s 5-2-1-0 message. Physical education teachers from each school are encouraging students to participate. Teachers will select two winning posters from each school. The winning artist will receive a free smoothie from the FUEL Smoothie and Juice Bar, located inside Energy Health & Fitness Factory. Winning posters will be published in an upcoming school district calendar. We look forward to seeing the posters created by Torrington’s young artists!
