Just a few more days You have until the end of the month to enter the #TeensGetFit scholarship contest to attend MindStream Academy.
I met with the MindStream team at BlogHer’12 and I can not tell you how inspired and impressed I was with the program that they run in Bluffton, Sc. This is not your mothers’ ‘fat camp’. This is a program dedicated to helping teens get fit, overcome addictions, get active, learn about what causes them to make unhealthy choices and over come those obstacles. They deal with the whole person. Mind, body and spirit. They teach that food should taste like food. Not sugar, starch and salt with a side of preservatives.
The campers are not missing out from their education while they are changing their inner and outer self. They attend online private school so when they return to their family and friends they are not behind in their studies.
MindStream hosts a fully accredited College Preparatory High School, on-campus, where the student is the focus. Our unique instructional model is tailored to meet each student’s needs and college aspirations. Advantages at MindStream Academy integrates an accredited online education with a traditional high school curriculum that meets and/or exceeds state and national standards. The result is truly individualized learning. At MindStream, students aren’t one of 30 in a class — they are the class. This allows us to tailor each student’s curriculum to their needs while offering robust one-to-one support to students and parents. Moreover, one-on-one support is never far away.* ** MindStreamAcademy.com
But Sarah…what does this have to do with pinching pennies?
Glad you asked…
The MindStream team is offering SCHOLARSHIP to blog readers. Check it out:

2nd Prize: $20,000 in scholarships (2 – $10k)
I know that attending wellness programs and a wonderful camp like MindStream Academy takes pennies. LOTS & LOTS of pennies. But as a parent I would move mountains to do what I saw would be the best solution for one of my children who were in need. But moving mountains isn’t always enough. Sometimes cold hard cash is what is needed. So enter this scholarship.
YOU may not have someone in your family who could benefit or even KNOW some one who could benefit…but lets face it…with the rate of obesity in our country there has to be SOMEONE. But if you could pass this along to your social network, tweet it, post it on Facebook, pin it on Pinterest. I am trusting that the correct person will post this or see this, it will get into the correct hands of a teen and family in need. We are talking about saving lives and changing generations. Filling out a form can be the start of that journey. This goes way beyond pennies my friends.
