Nominate an RD to Win $500 !!!

Welch's Hearts RDs!

We all know registered dietitians (RDs) have a lot of heart ... and to celebrate American Heart Month, Welch's will recognize five RDs for it. RDs play an important role in helping people lead heart-healthy lifestyles – and to celebrate their hard work and dedication, Welch’s is rewarding RDs who demonstrate leadership and innovation in heart-health nutrition education.
The five winners – and the people who submitted the winning nominations (no self-nomination permitted) – will each receive $500 from Welch’s to support their future nutrition education activities.
Submissions will be reviewed by members of Welch’s Health & Nutrition Advisory Panel, who will judge entries based on the following criteria:*
Heart-Health Focus
Activities must be grounded in heart-health nutrition education and outreach – such as leading seminars on heart-healthy living, developing heart-healthy recipes, supporting cardiovascular-focused nutrition research, or writing heart-health lifestyle articles and resources.
Significant Impact
Entries must demonstrate a significant impact – for example, because the work has reached a widespread audience (e.g., through media spokesperson work, an award-winning heart-health cookbook) or because the efforts have had a strong effect on a client’s lifestyle by improving his/her heart-healthfulness.
Innovation & Passion
Efforts should illustrate creativity and innovation that speak to the RD’s commitment to heart-health education – such as utilizing new techniques or tools to effectively reach clients and/or employing new channels to extend his/her communications efforts to reach a wider audience.

Welch's will announce the five RD winners (and the people who submitted the winning nominations) on RD Day, March 14, 2012. And, the winners’ stories will be featured here.
A heart-healthy lifestyle should be forever – but this contest only lasts a few weeks! Entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 29, 2012.
Please take just a few minutes and nominate an RD who “hearts” heart-health nutrition education!
