 Permanent link

It’s not too late to sign your team up to perform in the School Nutrition Foundation’s (SNF) annual lip-syncing competition: Puttin’ on the Glitz. This event will be held Tuesday, July 12, 7:30 pm, at Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland, and is your chance to get creative, have some fun and compete for prizes, all while helping to support SNF’s valuable educational programs. Interested in putting together a team? The team registration fee is $500. More information can be found at Is your team deserving of the “ANC Glitz” title? Well, there’s only one way to find out!

And what would be a good lip-syncing event be without an enthusiastic audience of ANC attendees? If getting up on stage isn’t your thing, you can still be part of this fun-filled evening by being a part of the audience! Come cheer on your peers and vote with your applause for the act you like best! If you’d like to attend, be sure you indicate so when registering for ANC.


“I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher was just one of the many entertaining songs chosen by teams participating at ANC 2010. What songs would you like to see used by this year’s Puttin’ on the Glitz teams?

Do you think this summer’s performances will top last year’s?

ANC is also an opportunity to earn your School Nutrition Specialist (SNS) designation. The SNS Credentialing Exam will be administered at ANC on Sunday, July 10, providing you the opportunity to enhance your professional image and add credibility to your program! Please note: The SNS exam being administered at ANC is the newly updated exam and those interested in taking the exam should refer to the NEW SNS Credentialing Handbook. This exam registration deadline is June 20th!

If you’re already registered for ANC, you can still add a pre-conference session to your registration. You can even register onsite at the conference, though we recommend that you register in advance, since pre-conference workshops do have limited space.
