With 1 in 3 young Americans considered overweight or obese, it’s clear that now (well, actually, yesterday) is the time to start making some serious changes!

World Champion athlete and health advocate Laila Ali — daughter of Muhammad Ali — has teamed up with DoSomething.org (one of our favorites!) to encourage teens and young adults to get serious about healthy living.

“From a very young age, I’ve learned the importance of exercise and giving your body the fuel it needs to stay strong,” explains Ali. “I am excited to be part of a campaign encouraging kids to take control of their own future by tackling this issue where it starts, in our nation’s schools.”

As part of the Healthy School Challenge, teens are asked to dream up creative cafeteria food and fitness program campaigns that help promote healthier living. The winner will receive an $1,000 scholarship, as well as scholarships for friends, and a celebratory school party.

But you know what? Laila says it better than I do. Watch the video after the jump and visit DoSomething.org to…”do something” for healthy school.
