TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas schools are winning recognition for keeping students active.

The Kansas State Department of Education says it worked with the Midwest Dairy Council to encourage schools to upload videos showing how their schools are active each day.

The grand prize winner in the Fuel Up to Play 60 Physical Activity Challenge was Gardiner Elementary School in Wichita. Runner-up schools are in Norton, McPherson, Olathe and Blue Rapids.

Fuel Up to Play 60 is a school nutrition and physical activity program. It's created in partnership with Midwest Dairy Council and the National Football League.

This year's focus was on efforts ranging from walking club to in-class activity breaks.
