Northeast Alabama Community College will once again be involved with Scale Back Alabama (SBA) this year. Scale Back Alabama is a free statewide weight-loss campaign designed to encourage Alabamians to get healthy and to have fun while doing it. Since the first challenge in 2007, Alabamians have lost more than one million pounds!
NACC will serve as a public weigh-in site January 22nd-January 25th, 2019. After registering your team on the ScaleBackAlabama site visit NACC to weigh-in. Weigh-in is in the Business Education Building Room 107 on Tuesday-Thursday: 4:00-7:00 PM and Friday 7:30-10:00 AM.
Registration for the Scale Back Alabama 2019 competition is now open. Visit http://scalebackalabama.com/ for more information on how to register online.

To be eligible for team prizes, each team member must lose at least 10 pounds during the 9-week challenge, as recorded by a coordinator at an official Scale Back Alabama weigh-in site.
Winning teams are determined by a random drawing from all eligible teams.
The first 3 teams drawn win $1,000 per team member, or a total of $2,000 for the entire team.
The second 3 teams drawn win $500 per team member, or a total of $1,000 for the entire team.
The final 3 teams drawn win $250 per team member, or a total of $500 for the entire team.
All individuals who lose at least 10 pounds, as recorded by a coordinator at an official Scale Back Alabama weigh-in site, are eligible for an individual prize, regardless of their team’s achievement. However, individuals that are drawn for a team prize are not eligible to win the individual prizes.
From the pool of eligible participants, 40 individuals drawn win one of 40 achievement prizes of $100 per person.
The individual prize drawings are conducted following the April 16 webcast announcing team prizes and are posted on the Scale Back Alabama website approximately two hours after the conclusion of the webcast.
