Five students won the chance to consult Warren Buffett on their ideas for improving the health of their schools.
The students won a national contest and got to meet Buffett Friday on the eve of the annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway.
The students are ambassadors for Fuel Up to Play 60, the wellness program backed by the National Football League and the National Dairy Council. The students each receive $4,000 grants to implement their ideas.
Josh Miller, a fifth-grader from Maple Grove, Minn., said Buffett gave him several ideas about how to make his idea for a weekly half-hour exercise program successful.
