A video interview with Rebecca Soni
September 26, 2012
Monday morning, grand prize winners of the Ask, Listen, Learn Challenge from the Paul Public Charter School spent time with U.S. Olympic swimmer Rebecca Soni. Over 30 schools across the country participated in the challenge which encouraged students to say “yes” to a healthy lifestyle and “no” underage drinking. Students from Paul Public Charter School in Washington D.C. demonstrated their commitment to a healthy lifestyle during the two week challenge administered by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education and won a voucher from Sportime for new PE equipment along with the opportunity to meet Rebecca. Rebecca spoke with students about how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle and how staying active and making healthy choices has benefitted her.
