Winners of the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizens Essay and Scholarship contest were honored on March 6 at a luncheon hosted by the local Horseshoe Prairie Chapter. Begun in 1934, the Good Citizens Award recognizes students who possess to an outstanding degree the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. Winners from each of the participating schools received pins and certificates, and Lauren Rose Glassburn of Tipton High School, the chapter winner, received an additional monetary award and commemorative flag flown over the United States Capitol in her honor.
