The Step It Up Challenge, in partnership with FitBit, encourages school employees and students if they wish to join to rack up the most possible steps during the challenge, which runs from Oct. 31 to Nov. 13.

With the help of the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the school district that ends with the most steps will receive $1,500. Top steppers in each district will win $1,000. Steps must be recorded on the FitBit app, and there is no cost to participate.
