The Austintown School District shared one of its outstanding programs during the annual Student Achievement Fair on Nov. 12 at the 2013 Ohio School Boards Association Capital Conference.

According to OSBA, “The fair showcases the many innovative projects and programs districts have created to boost student achievement and engage youngsters in learning and growth.”

Tanner Mackall, Abbey Loew and Robbie Berarducci from the Falcon Business Academy traveled to Columbus with their advisor. The students showcased the Freddie’s Fuel Up and Go Cart which offers healthy snacks, milk, juice and water to students during study halls. Each time a student purchases something from the cart, he or she is entered into a weekly drawing for X-Box Kinect activity time during his or her study hall period on Friday.

The business plan the students wrote not only teaches the students to manage money, but also promotes healthy eating habits, and encourages physical activity.

Last spring, Food Service Director, Tascin Brooks received a grant from the American Dairy Council and National Football League (NFL) Fuel Up to Play 60 that allowed the purchase of Freddie’s Fuel Up and Go Cart and an X-Box Kinect.
