  The USDA's HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) awards are a way for the USDA to recognize schools that have created healthier school environments through improvements in the quality of food while providing both nutrition and physical education to promote healthy lifestyles. HUSSC is a key component in Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign and is also helping schools to prepare for the school meal pattern changes developed by USDA for nation-wide implementation starting SY 2012-2013.

Currently, eleven Vermont schools have been recognized as HUSSC award winners:
