Okemos, MI, July 10, 2014 – In support of the Milk Means More campaign, the rock & roll nutrition show Jump with Jill will be provided at no cost to 35 schools across Michigan this fall. Schools can enter to win a spot on the tour by submitting an entry at jumpwithjill.com/win. For Michigan schools to be eligible for this engaging educational experience, schools must be elementary level, be new to Jump with Jill, and be willing to sign up for the completely free Fuel Up to Play 60 program. Awards are rolling, so schools considering entering should stop reading this and submit their entry now.

“Not only is milk a high quality protein and nutrient source, it is one of Michigan’s leading agricultural products, generating nearly 40,000 jobs,” says Jump with Jill creator Jill Jayne, a Registered Dietitian and musician. “It’s so fun to sing about a food that is healthy for our bodies, our communities, and our environment.”

Winning schools not only get a rockin’ live performance but also receive Jump with Jill educational materials including a CD of Jump with Jill music and DVDs of danceable music videos including a rap about calcium, The Bone Rap, and a Latin tune about breakfast, Get Me Goin’. This is all thanks to the generosity of Michigan’s own dairy farmers and milk processors and the wonderful folks at the United Dairy Industry of Michigan (UDIM).

“We are dedicated to being a source of information on dairy foods and Michigan dairy farming,” said Sharon Toth, CEO of United Dairy Industry of Michigan. “The Milk Means More brand captures the impact Michigan’s dairy industry has throughout our state, from providing nutritious and wholesome foods, to jobs in our communities. We are so proud to partner with Jump with Jill to take this message to Michigan kids.”
