2014 was a banner year for creative and successful Mix It Up at Lunch Days! If your school put together a great Mix event and has kept the Mix spirit going all year, we hope you’ll apply to have your school designated as a Mix It Up Model School.
As a Mix Model School, your school will be recognized for fostering the kind of welcoming school environment all students deserve. We'll profile your school on the Mix It Up website, showing educators and students across the country—and even around the world—how a committed team can do Mix It Up at Lunch Day well. Your efforts will serve as an example for other schools striving for inclusiveness.
How to Become a Mix It Up Model School
Mix It Up Model Schools embrace respect and inclusiveness as core values and mix it up throughout the year. The 2014-2015 Mix It Up Model Schools will have demonstrated creativity and success in the following areas:
1. Participation: Your school hosted a Mix It Up at Lunch Day in 2014 (it did not have to fall on National Mix It Up at Lunch Day, Oct. 28).
2. Extension: Your school followed up with at least two additional Mix It Up-related programs or events on your campus.
3. Organization: Diverse members of the school community (e.g., cafeteria staff, aides, administration, teachers or students) helped organize Mix It Up.
4. Publicity: Your school publicized Mix It Up at Lunch Day or celebrated inclusiveness through a variety of channels, such as posters, announcements and other media.
5. Implementation: Your students and colleagues saw Mix It Up at Lunch Day as effective and fun!
Don’t meet all the criteria yet? No worries. Applications aren't due until February 18.
We’re looking forward to reading your success story!
