Community Challenge

January 8 - March 4

New Year, New You! Now is a great time to start living a healthier lifestyle and IT'S TIME TEXAS can help you. Presented by H-E-B, this challenge is a free, statewide competition in which Texas communities compete to see which communities can demonstrate the greatest commitment to healthy living. IT'S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge starts on January 8, 2018 and runs through March 4, 2018. Winners will be announced on the IT'S TIME TEXAS Facebook page.

IT'S TIME TEXAS will award five communities with a custom trophy and a banner recognizing their achievements, as well as a $1,200 check to fund a healthy project at school. Plus, the winners will receive statewide recognition and bragging rights for the rest of the year.

There are a number of different ways to earn points for your community. To start, you must be a registered user at the website,, which will award your community 50 points. Once registered, visit your Community's Profile Page on the site to submit different activities to help your community compete for the crown.

Last year more than 23,500 Texans, representing roughly 330 communities participated in the Challenge. They exercised more and tracked their workouts, ate healthier, organized group and community health events, and encouraged their friends, family, colleagues and fellow community members to join them in demonstrating their commitment to healthier cities and a healthier state. Let's get healthy. It's time, Euless!
