(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The organization that governs extracurricular activities in Oklahoma public schools will be asking students how to improve sportsmanship.

The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association is mailing letters to its 470 member schools. The letters ask the schools to nominate students to help lead a new sportsmanship campaign.

The executive director of the O-S-S-A-A says the children need to take the lead in finding ways to change attitudes and behavior.

Danny Rennels says the state group of 16 students will include athletes, band members, debate team members and cheerleaders from across Oklahoma.
