What is the Presidential

Active Lifestyle Award

(PALA)?

The Presidential Active Lifestyle Award is an award you

can earn by keeping track of any physical activity that you

do. By earning this award you can learn the good habit of

keeping active every day. Being physically active makes

you healthy, gives you energy, and is just plain fun. Here’s

how to do it!

How to Earn this Award

(Follow these steps . . . )

There are two ways to keep track of physical activity for

this award. One way is to accumulate a minimum of 60

minutes of physical activity. This activity can be done at

one time for 60 minutes or the minutes of activity can be

accumulated in shorter segments throughout the day.

Another way to measure your activity is to use a pedometer.

The pedometer measures the number of steps taken

during the day. The number of pedometer steps that must

be reached anytime throughout the day is 11,000 for girls

and 13,000 for boys.

You may do many different types of activity, but you must

gather 60 minutes of activity or enough pedometer steps

at least 5 days per week.

Record your activity (or steps) every day for six weeks

on the form provided. You can photocopy this form or

you can download additional copies of this form from

our website at www.indiana.edu/preschal/palaform.pdf

At the end of each week verify your log

by signing your name.

When you have completed all six weeks,

fill out and have supervising adult sign

the verification on this page.

Congratulations! You have earned the

Presidential Active Lifestyle Award.
