Kaylei Carie, daughter of Clint and Erica Carie, and Gabe Neukam, son of Kayle and Brooke Neukam, both students from Northeast Dubois Elementary School, were the top girl and boy winner of the fourth grade in The American Legion Flag Education Testing Program.

Children and Youth Chairman Daniel Lawson presented each student with a post award certificate and an American Legion Americanism Medallion during an awards presentation at the school on Jan. 18. In addition, Kaylei was awarded as the overall winner of the participating schools. She received an additional award and certificate.   

The major objective of the Flag Testing Program is to build patriotism in our youth and to develop a thorough understanding of proper flag display and courtesy.
