This summer, some middle schoolers in Washington, D.C., were offered a challenge: no cellphones, TV or video games for 11 Tuesdays. The school's principal offered $100 to each student who successfully avoided their screens.

WAMU's Kate McGee (@McGeeReports) caught up with some of the students who tried the challenge.

This segment aired on September 11, 2017.
