“We believe healthy competition is a good thing,” said Richelle Wallace, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Norway Savings Bank. “Our six-week nutrition challenge, which pits teams against one another with the goals of drinking more water, eating more whole foods and cooking more wholesome meals at home.
