Local students win competition

Monday, May 28, 2012

Two local students recently earned first-place in a flag program.

Cheyenne Olsen and Ricky Atkinson from Van Buren Elementary won first-place in the local flag program competition.

Olsen also went on to win first-place in the district competition.

The American Legion Post 2 offered a flag program last fall to all fourth-grade students at six of the local elementary schools. Each student was given a booklet to study with questions and multiple answers to choose from.

The Legion picked the top boy and girl from each school with the best score and essay. The top two students from all the schools were then sent to the district and state competitions.

Legion representatives said they were proud of the winners and wanted to thank all the students for their participation.
