NH’s anti-stress education campaign emphasizes ‘reset, let go, grow’


CONCORD, NH (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Education on Friday announced an initiative for children and parents to find time in their busy schedules to take a break, take a break, and share that time with others.

It’s called the “603 Moment” campaign, mirroring the state’s area code and the start of June 3. Governor Chris Sununu planned its launch during a New Hampshire Fisher Cats baseball game, handing out small whiteboards to patrons and encouraging them to share their moment in writing.

The initiative announces “Reset. Let’s go. Grow.”

“Much like the #HomeHikeChallenge for the past two years, our #603Moment initiative aims to help children, parents and families in New Hampshire refocus and appreciate the little things in life,” Sununu said in a statement. “Let’s channel these 603 Moments into positive change and renew the important conversations about the importance of social and emotional health not only in our schools, but also in our communities.”

Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut said a moment ‘may occur during a walk or a lunch break, or perhaps it is a quiet reflection during the visit of a favorite place, or just a few deep breaths in the midst of chaos”.

Residents will be encouraged to share their moment on social media with the hashtag #603Moment.
