Contest winning schools were: Oak Grove (Class 6A); West Jones (Class 5A); Louisville (Class 4A); Seminary (Class 3A); Scott Central (Class 2A); and Nanih Waiya (Class 1A). Each school will receive a check for $1,000 designated for its physical education department from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi.
