The "Be a good egg" contest, which will run through Nov. 15, provides elementary schools throughout the U.S. with the opportunity to receive a $5,000 grant to put towards a health or nutrition initiative along with a donation to a local food bank in their name.


Teachers, kids and parents take a short quiz online, and the school with the most completed quizzes receives the grant. Five runners-up will receive a $1,000 educational grant. The contest is part of The Good Egg Project: Education Station program with Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital resources to K-12 classrooms, which is designed to teach children how eggs go from farm-to-table, the benefits of high-quality protein in a healthy diet and community service.
