ENC-Teacher Exchange

Share your best ideas for combating obesity

Up for a challenge?

 'Publishable' new teaching tools can earn you $500

One of the most innovative aspects of ENC-Teacher Exchange is an open invitation to nutrition and/or physical education teachers to create new or substantially updated teaching tools to help schools combat obesity.  

We're accepting new program concepts from family and consumer sciences teachers, other nutrition educators, and from Physical Educaton teachers who express a willingness to dedicate from 8 to 10 hours over the period of one month to create one new obesity-fighting teaching tool, or to measurably update an existing teaching tool, perhaps by employing new technology. 

Teachers chosen by ENC to create a new obesity-fighting teaching tool--even those who prefer to collaborate with one or two other teachers in a team effort--have the opportunity to each receive a $500 honorarium from Egg Nutrition Center if the idea is transformed into an asset that we publish on this ENC-Teacher web site. 

Importantly, all new nutrition teaching tools published here on www.encteacher.org are regarded as  "public domain" so that teachers anywhere in the world can download use the information without asking for prior approval or fear of copyright infringement.  And we'll be sure to assign authorship to the teacher or team of teachers that create the new tool.

Egg Nutrition Center may invite one of its health care advisors, often a Registered Dietitian or University-based food scientist, to participate in the process.  But the teachers who bring the concept to us will drive the project through conclusion. 

To submit your new obesity-fighting program, just begin by sending us an E-mail: info@encteacher.org.   Linda Tinoco will be in touch and, if you need to reach her, please call 708-974-3153.

USDA oversees ENC education programs
The ENC is funded by the American Egg Board, which is a checkoff program. In the United States, a checkoff program collects fundsfrom farmers of a particular agricultural commodity and uses these funds for promotional and research activities. Checkoff programs conduct generic promotion, research, and consumer information activities. The United States Department of Agriculture is responsible for overseeing the research and educational activities of checkoff programs under the authority of the Egg Research and Consumer Information Act.
