In September, the Blaine City Council unanimously passed a referendum supporting the national initiative Let’s Move! by declaring Blaine a Let’s Move! city.
This inititative is “dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and be able to pursue their dreams.”
By becoming a Let’s Move! city, the Blaine City Council has committed to making lasting policy changes and launching new programs in the four pillars of Let’s Move! that call for local action:
1. Reducing the risk of obesity in early childhood;
2. Improving nutrition in schools;
3. Increasing access to fresh affordable food; and
4. Increasing physical activity.
“As we begin the early phases of becoming Let’s Move! Blaine!, we are looking for community input to develop a distinct logo that would embrace these four pillars and represent our community,” said Dan Persse, the Blaine Elementary school physical education teacher spearheading Let’s Move! Blaine! “We want an artistic design that represents ‘Let’s Move! Blaine!’”
Let’s Move! Blaine! is partnering with The Northern Light, which will accept logos from now until December 31. The finalists will be displayed on the The Northern Light’s Facebook page to be voted on by the Blaine community the first part of January. The winning artistic rendering will be considered for the Let’s Move! Blaine! logo.
Please send your high resolution logos (PDF is preferable) to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Let’s Move!, visit www.letsmove.gov.
