LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — This weekend, all the talk is centered around Super Bowl Sunday. Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority predicts about 306,000 visitors will be in the valley for the game this weekend.
While thousands come here to watch the big game, one local teacher will get to see it live and in person!
Ada Feliciano of Forbuss Elementary School is leaving Friday for Atlanta on an all-expenses paid trip!
"I'm super excited! Okay I'm not excited for any cold weather but I'm super excited to go."
This trip is made possible by the Dairy Council of Nevada in partnership with the NFL through their program "Fuel Up to Play 60".
The program encourages teachers like Ada to develop activities that would get young students to exercise, be active for at least 60 minutes a day and eat right. Other teachers Ada's working with and her own students nominated her to win the prize.
7-year-old Erhianna Barajas loves Ms. Feliciano and how she gets creative in making sure kids stay active. "I like that she works us to the bone", Erhianna jokes.
Ada says, "We want students to not just develop academically but we want them to know that they choose. They have power over being healthy or not."
Ada Feliciano is the first teacher in the valley to win this kind of prize through the Dairy Council of Nevada.
