MIDDLETOWN, Md. — Middletown Middle School won a $10,000 award through a contest sponsored by the “Henkel Helps” program, which promotes youth fitness and helps combat childhood obesity.
The winning schools submitted nominations answering the question, “What would your school do with $10,000 to improve youth fitness?”
Middletown, which competed against thousands of other schools to win the national contest, will use the money toward the cost of repairing its 60 year-old decaying track that is used by students and the community.
