Pala Challenge

Pala Challenge

The entertainment software industry is proud to team up with the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition to help the nation’s youth lead healthier, more active lifestyles!

The Active Play PALA Challenge is a collaborative effort between the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and its member companies and the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN). It will strive to harness the excitement surrounding active video games to provide a long-term, sustainable approach in establishing healthy lifestyles by making video game screen time truly "active." Active gaming is a great way to work towards earning your Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+), and PALA+ is a great tool to motivate and track activity levels to help you live a healthier lifestyle!

Participate in PALA+
PALA+ is the next phase of PALA (Presidential Active Lifestyle Award), a program of the President’s Challenge, designed to motivate Americans to make physical activity and healthy eating part of their everyday life.
