McAuliffe, Fremont Intermediate and Hueneme High made the list of 30 schools throughout California selected for the award. They will receive $1,000 each.
The competition is for K-12 schools in California. Students try to be active 30 to 60 minutes a day at least three times a week, for a month. Front-runner awards go to schools that record the most “active days” by Jan. 31.
Schools also compete for three grand prizes — fitness activity centers — and 11 regional awards of $5,000 for exercise equipment.
