Neligh-Oakdale was one of many area schools that made the trek to Norfolk on Wednesday to take part in Northeast Community College's Scholastic Contest. Not only did they travel well, but they returned with lots to be proud of also.
Six students earned medals for their work on the day. Celina Knievel, Hailey Bixler and Marcus Reed led the way, taking first in the respective categories. Knievel finished first in music, Bixler took first in library usage and Reed took first in small engines.
Gage Dawson and Danny Mickelson each finished as runner-ups on the day, with Dawson taking second in geometry and Mickelson taking second in vocabulary. Rounding out the Neligh-Oakdale medalists was Taylor Sehi, who took third in parenting/child development.
