It's not only what you say, it's how you say it.

 

Here’s your chance to create your own “beautiful thing”— a clear, colorful infographic that engages, educates and entertains—and win cool prizes for your effort.  We invite you to enter the KIDS COUNT Infographics Challenge!

 

The Challenge is a crowd-sourced competition that asks young people (13 to 21) and adults (22 and older) to creatively present the 2012 KIDS COUNT (http://datacenter.kidscount.org/) data that matter most to them. Focus on data about your city, your state or an issue area that affects the nation as a whole. It's up to you, because we know it's not just what you say that matters, it's how you say it.

CDC VitalSigns - More People Walk to Better Health

CDC VitalSigns - More People Walk to Better Health | United Way | Scoop.it

Physical activity helps control weight, but it has other benefits. Physical activity such as walking can help improve health even without weight loss.

People need safe, convenient places to walk. People are more likely to walk and move about more when they feel protected from traffic and safe from crime and hazards.  Maintaining surfaces can keep people who walk from falling and getting hurt. This also helps wheelchairs and strollers and is safer for people with poor vision. People need to know where places to walk in their communities exist that are safe and convenient. Walking routes in and near neighborhoods encourage people to walk to stops for buses, trains, and trolleys.
