Active Living Challenge
The Active Living Challenge is a wellness program that begins October 1st and extends until April 1st. The goal of the challenge is to motivate NSCC students and employees to increase their physical activity each month in hopes that they experience the benefits of increased energy, lower stress levels, and an improvement in overall physical and mental health.
Participants log their minutes of activity completed each day and submit a Tracking Calendar at the end of every month. For every 100 minutes of activity logged, the students name will be entered into a draw to win monthly Active Living prize packages. At the end of each semester, the student with greatest amount of logged physical activity will receive the grand prize and title of "Most Active NSCC Student". We also have optional 30 Day Fitness Challenges and Wellness Goals to participate in throughout the program for a chance at extra entries into the monthly prize draw!

Incentives for students
Don't forget that we have PRIZES!!! Last year our rewards included things like pedometers, water bottles, gym bags, gift cards of all kinds, and $500.00 prize packages for our "Most Active NSCC Student" each semester. This year we have that… plus chances to win gym memberships, day passes, fitness classes on campus, and much more!
Staff and Faculty participation
The Active Living Challenge is also open to NSCC employees. We will be awarding the title of "Mover of the Month" in recognition of an employee's participation level and support of the program. This is based on minutes logged, organization of a fitness activity on campus, engaging and motivating fellow participants, and more. If you are an employee, be sure to let us know what you're doing to champion the challenge at your campus for your chance to win!
