Calling all teachers! A nationwide contest is underway to get students involved in the fight against childhood obesity.

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.

Click here to information on the program and how to enter the contest.
