Virginia PTA Power Plates Program

Virginia PTA Power Plates Program is designed to encourage students to practice healthy eating habits by submitting their recipes for competition.   The competition is open to students from grades pre-kindergarten through 12.  The program is administered by the Virginia PTA Health and Safety Committee.

There are five meal categories:

  • ​Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
  • Dessert 
  • Snack

Students can enter their original, healthy recipes in three easy steps: write down the recipe, fill out the Student Entry Form, and take a picture of the dish – then submit!

Entries are reviewed by judges appointed by the Health and Safety Committee.  1st Place winners will be publicly recognized by the Virginia PTA each spring.
