A new campaign underway nationwide is called Recess Rocks and is sponsored by the Community Health Center.
It pairs dance instructors with schools to increase students' activity in a fun way.
Until today, it was only offered to Connecticut schools.
As part of the program's launch, a video contest is underway.
All second through eighth graders are encouraged to submit a video that features a speech, song, dance or commercial that answers two questions: "how do you feel about the childhood obesity problem?" and "what can you do about it?"
Prizes will be awarded to the contest winners and their schools.
