Special Events

The School Milk Program supports your school!

In addition to regular program rewards, registered schools are also eligible to participate in other special School Milk events such as:


Milk Spirit Week

Food and fun go hand in hand! What better way to celebrate healthy eating and active living than with Milk Spirit Week? Dairy Farmers of Manitoba would like to offer your school the opportunity to celebrate. Help keep healthy eating top of mind, keep your school spirit alive, and have fun doing it!

You can design the week anyway you like.  All we ask is:

  1. In December complete the online application form to be one of the first 200 schools to apply. Please note: Only the first 200 schools to apply will be eligible!  Registration closes after 200 applicants have been accepted. If you qualify, a confirmation letter will be forwarded following receipt of your application.
  2. You can run your Milk Spirit Week anytime between February and the end of June.
  3. Three events during your week must be related to milk in some way. Please refer to the Ideas and Activities Booklet.

Have fun planning your Milk Spirit Week!
