Lake Washington High Teens in Hunt for Healthy Cash

The Kirkland students produced four of the 10 finalists in the Lifewise Health Plan of Washington high school video contest.

Some creative teens from Lake Washington High School in Kirkland are in the hunt for thousands of dollars in prize money for their school as part of Lifewise Health Plan of Washington’s Hunt 4 Health High School Video Challenge.

The teens created two- to three-minute videos demonstrating what King and Snohomish County teens do with their friends to stay healthy.

Four of the 10 finalist videos were created by teens from Lake Washington High School: The Healthy Song, Hunt for Health Video, The Hunt for a Wild Health, and John & Stephen. They include music videos, interviews with fellow students and a spoof on a wildlife adventure show.

The other finalists are:

  • Living a Healthy Skate Life, Nova, Seattle
  • Health Hunters, Enumclaw High School
  • Young Health, Cascade High School, Everett
  • Food I don’t Like, Auburn High School
  • Eye of the Tiger, Roosevelt High School, Seattle
  • Gymnastics for Our Minds, West Seattle High School

Anyone can show their support by viewing the top 10 submissions on the contest's Facebook page and voting for their favorites by Jan. 31.

The top three winners will be announced by Feb. 15, and the winning schools receive up to $7,000 to benefit their nutrition and physical activity programs. The students who produced the winning video receive prizes, such as a GoPro video camera and fitness swag.
