Kingsborough Middle School student Olivia Sweatt was selected from a nationwide search and an extensive application process to attend the Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador Summit at The University of Minnesota and U.S. Bank Stadium this summer.

Fuel Up to Play 60 is the nation’s largest health and wellness program created in partnership with Dairy MAX and the NFL, in cooperation with USDA.

Olivia will have the opportunity to meet NFL players, compete for chances to win funding for her school and design new and exciting healthy eating and physical activities for her school community.

“Olivia has already demonstrated such impressive leadership skills, and we can’t wait for her to join our team,” said Diary Max School Wellness Consultant Holly Stojanik. “Olivia has shown tremendous passion for Fuel Up to Play 60 and we’re delighted that she has chosen to lead the way by inspiring her peers and community to eat healthy and get active.”

The summit will provide student ambassadors the opportunity to meet their fellow leaders from across the country and will help them strengthen their leadership and communication skills.

For Olivia, attending this summit will be a step forward in her long term goals.  

“I want to be an athletic trainer so this will look good on my resume for college and I think it will help me get farther in life,” Olivia said. “I really want to try to get people to be as good as they can be.”

The eight grader plays volleyball, soccer and participates in track. She has been a part of Kids School Health Advisory Council at KMS for two years.

Way to go, Olivia!
