Every year there are a number of awards that are given out for individual accomplishments. We also hold a Model County contest to recognize the county that best worked together to accumulate the most model county points. These points are gained by participating in various events like the essay and oration contests, correctly documenting county and city council meetings, sporting events, and obtaining various state level positions. This year’s Overall Model County is Savage County. The runner up is Kennedy County. Third place is Gleason County.
