Auten Road Intermediate School in Hillsborough, NJ has been bringing Austin the Unstoppable to their 6th grade students every year since the show premiered in 2012. Minda Maggio, District Life Skills Coordinator, believes Austin's message of a healthy lifestyle, family and friendship, and achieving your goals positively impacts the students at ARIS. Maggio said, "Students learn about the power they have to make healthy choices in all aspects of life (not just what they eat, but also in their relationships, their family, etc.) The performance is very effective -- it's funny while covering a serious topic. Great balance!"
