A Dickinson elementary school received an award for their charitable work.

Lincoln Elementary received the 2020 Lifeblood Award for being the No. 1 fundraiser in North Dakota.

“Our schools are really at the heart of our community and setting up kids, our kids to do community service project like this and then knowing the kids have this great award coming to them too for the work they did. That they were recognized for their community service work that they’ve done,” explained Amber Fridley, School Psychologist Intern with Dickinson Public School.
