Student Wins Healthy Habits Award

Fit YOUTH held a "Healthy Habits" drawing contest. The drawing had to be about ways to be healthy by eating healthy foods and exercising.

Over 400 students in grades K-8th grade entered. Over 40 doctors, nurses, the CEO, physical therapists, and staff from Fit-Wise and many others voted and there were 13 winners and Mr. Kolson Jenkins was one of those winners. In his honor, Fit YOUTH is donating $100 to Paradise's PE department along with giving the school a poster of Kolson's drawing to hang up for all the school to see and a calendar with all the winning drawings.

Kolson will also receive a poster, calendars, and several other goodies. We are super proud of Kolson and want to encourage all of you to participate in this contest next year but most of all to eat healthy and exercise all your life!
