Berkeley County School District Results from 2012-2013:

In BCSD, an invitation to participate was extended to every school.  There were 17 schools that participated and 12 schools that earned enough points to qualify for a $1000 reward.  BCSD was funded for $10,000 in this first year of their participation, and as such only 10 schools were funded to receive the $1000 reward.  The top 10 schools, however, in the spirit of wellness decided to split the $10,000 among the 12 qualifying schools - how wonderful!  Each of the 12 schools received $833 to use for their wellness efforts in the 2013-2014 school year!
