Bad Liebenstein (dpa/th) – The State Sports Association of Thuringia (LSB) and the Ministry of Sports of the Free State awarded ten schools in Bad Liebenstein the title “Exercise-Friendly Schools” on Thursday. In addition to a certificate, the schools each received 1,000 euros for the purchase of new sports and play equipment, as announced by the LSB and the ministry.
“After Corona, we have to strongly promote the movement of children and young people,” said Minister of Sport Helmut Holter (left). Sports and exercise opportunities in everyday school life served directly for this purpose. The “exercise-friendly schools” offer activating offers, competitions, healthy nutrition and, through cooperation, contact with sports clubs.
A healthy, sporty lifestyle for children and young people is decisively shaped by everyday school life, added LSB General Manager Thomas Zirkel. As it was also said, the call for applications for the current school year is already underway. According to the information, informal applications are possible until November 15, 2022.
