Oldenburg Academy students were recognized for their efforts in the Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest, according to President Diane Laake.
Sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary, the event is held annually for students in grades 9-12. Entries are judged on the originality of concept, presentation and patriotism.
In the local contest, OA students placed in the top three. They included Josh Hollingsworth, first place; Elizabeth Schulte, second place; and Meredith Maier, third place.
