I Love Burnsville

The City of Burnsville and Highland Bank sponsored the I Love Burnsville Essay Contest. The contest was open to all third grade students who reside in Burnsville and over 160 students entered the contest. Four winners were selected and those four winners were recognized at last night's Burnsville City Council Meeting. Mrs. Engdahl and I attended the meeting to recognize Dana who took first place in the contest. This is the second year of the contest and Sioux Trail students have received awards both years. Dana had an opportunity to read her essay to the Burnsville City Council, she received a $200 Savings Bond and a $100 check for Sioux Trail. Dana is meeting with Mrs. Engberg today to select the books she is going to buy with the money she won for Sioux Trail.

Congratulations Dana!
