The Neligh Boy Scouts held their annual Blue and Gold Banquet at the Neligh American Legion Hall on Sunday afternoon.
Winners of the Pinewood Derby were (pictured, right to left) Dawson Kaup-1st; Dylan Wright-2nd; Carson Whitesel-3rd; and Trysten Coover-4th. Ryder Schwager (far left) was presented a trophy for best overall car, an award voted on by all of the Boy Scouts.
Several other Boy Scouts were recognized for their accomplishments.
Zach Wright, son of Mike and Amy Wright, received Boy Scout's highest honor, his Eagle Scout badge. Wright's project has been a big help to the Neligh Fire Department. He marked Neligh's fire hydrants with color-coded reflectors, increasing the hydrant's nighttime visibility and immediately identifying each hydrant's flow-rate.
Norfolk Elk's Club members presented special awards to all of the scouts who recently earned their Eagle Scout rankings-- Alex Grosserode, Zach Wright, Jacob Ramold and Garrett Jacobsen.
