A student at the Holy Spirit School in Norway won an award Friday for a patriotic essay she wrote. T he Veteran Riders were in attendance, and so were various state representatives.
Emily Miciniak was presented with a plaque from the governor by Congressman Dan Benishek. Miciniak was grateful that so many people were able to make it to the event, and she said that we should all be thankful on this day.
"It's good to be a patriot because America is such a great country, and we should all be proud that we're Americans," said Emily Miciniak.
She also won a trophy that will be kept in the school's trophy case for a year and will be presented to next year's winner.
