JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A 6th grader is about to be eating a lot of subway sandwiches thanks to his hard work and dedication in the Subway Fresh Start Challenge.

Jacob Haley picked up a $250 gift card from Subway after participating in a six week long program.

The program encourages students to participate in healthy eating habits along with staying active.

Participants submitted their forms for a drawing to win the grand prize, but to be a grand prize winner, Jacob had to put in work and he did just that.

"I exercised, ate fruits and vegetables drank lots of water and don't watch TV that much," said Jacob.

Because of Jacob's success, the Jonesboro Health, Wellness and Environmental Studies Magnet School received a $1,000 grant to purchase physical activity equipment and educational resources.
