Abstract
  • This study aimed to evaluate the contingencies and reinforcements that most engage active high school (HS) students in a virtual classroom to learn and adopt healthy lifestyles. In Phase 1, 21 HS students completed focus groups about factors they perceived as engaging for them in learning about lifelong healthy habits. In Phase 2, three high schools were surveyed on the types of fluids that were available to active HS students and the number of water fountains in each school building. Both male and female high school students were most interested in learning about the types of foods that are helpful for an athlete’s performance, as well as recovery foods. Among three sampled HS, the most common beverage was flavored water. The variety of fluids available to students significantly decreased after school hours. School demographics were notably different. Crescent Valley High School (CVHS) was higher in Whites (76%), Corvallis High School (CHS) was higher in Hispanics (13%), and Clackamas High School (CLHS) was higher in Asian (16%). Per 10,000 square feet, there were 0.77, 0.63, and 0.73 fountains at CVHS, CHS, and CLHS, respectively. These findings contributed to the WAVE Project intervention to prevent childhood obesity among active HS students.
