JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A6th grader is about to be eating a lot of subway sandwiches thanks to his hardwork and dedication in the Subway Fresh Start Challenge.

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

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

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

"I exercised, ate fruitsand 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 receiveda $1,000 grant to purchase physical activity equipment and educationalresources.
