During the luncheon, three West River South Dakota students were recognized and awarded scholarships.  Scholarship winners were Paige Lehrkamp, Rapid City ($2,000); Brycen Cheney, Wall ($2,000); and CJ Livermont, Interior ($600 to Western Dakota Tech). These scholarships are made possible by the generous businesses that support Youth Day.
