El Paso - Congratulations go out to students at Edgemere Elementary School in El Paso.
Edgemere is one of the winners of the Subway Fitness Challenge.
18 schools in the Borderland took part in the challenge to educate students about eating right and exercising.
Edgemere is one of three schools to receive a special grant.
"It's a $1,000 grant and it's for physical equipment that we'll be receiving," said Edgemere Principal Maria Maldonado.
"It's like homework. It keeps them out doing physical activity all day, documenting everything and it worked," said coach Frank Sanchez.
The other two top performers were Lamar and Fannin Elementary Schools.
