Kammi Jarvis stands in front of her fifth grade classroom at Ealy Elementary School in Whitehall. She won an expense paid trip for she and her mom to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans for her winning entry in the national Oatmeal Challenge.
NEW ORLEANS – Whitehall fifth grader Kammi Jarvis is not only among the 73,000 fans at today’s (Feb. 3) Super Bowl XLVII in the Mercedes Benz Superdome, but will be running the football out to the officials for the start of the clash between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.
Kammi received that opportunity as the Grand Prize winner of the Fuel Up to Play 60 Oatmeal Challenge. As the top winner of the nationwide contest, she won an all-expense paid trip for two to the Super Bowl, including spending Saturday with a player of her choice among the Super Bowl teams.
She will have the time of her life at the epic sporting event which will be seen on television by millions of viewers across the U.S. and in 14 foreign countries.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is a program founded by the National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with USDA, that empowers students to take charge in making small, everyday changes at school. Students can win cool prizes, like an NFL player visit or Super Bowl tickets, for choosing good-for-you foods and getting active for at least 60 minutes every day.
Kammi’s winning entry is “Oatmealicious.”
The challenge asked students to send in their idea for how their school should serve up an oatmeal breakfast everyone will love.
“I was shocked,” Kammi recalled when she learned she was the grand prize winner of a trip to the Super Bowl.
