Logan DiTullio, a ninth-grade student at James Island Charter High School, and Osbaldo Duarte, a third-grader at St. Andrew's School of Math and Science, each received an awards package that included a $1,000 Subway card and $1,000 fitness grant for their schools for their entries.

Osbaldo filmed his winning video during the Courting Kids program. Courting Kids is an National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) program designed to help inner city youth enjoy a healthy lifestyle through tennis. Osbaldo enlisted the help of a college friend and created the video using many of hte Courting Kids participants in the background to make the video as energetic as possible.

Almost 400 students in the Lowcountry submitted posters and videos depicting how they stay healthy and fit. The program was designed to help educate students, increase local awareness about the nation's childhood obesity problem and provide positive incentives for kids to form healthier diet and exercise habits.
