    SHAPE America — Society of Health and Physical Educators — is the largest organization of physical educators in the country, with close to 20,000 members. SHAPE America created the first-ever K-12 physical education national standards; developed the Let’s Move in School public awareness campaign to increase physical activity before, during, and after school; and originated the Shape of the Nation Report, which reviews the status of physical education across the United States. Among its many partners, SHAPE America works with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, the American Heart Association, The Cooper Institute, First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, and the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.
