    In separate awards programs May 4, students in grades 4-8 at Chase County Schools were honored for their work the past year in the classroom and extracurriculars.
    A program earlier in the afternoon was set aside for the grade 4-6 awards. Students in grades 7-8 were honored prior to the high school program that night.
    Awards for music, art, math, spelling, writing, physical fitness, as well as special awards for scholarship, citizenship and achievement were handed out by teachers and principals.
    Scholarship awards are given for academic excellence. Citizenship awards are presented to those students who get along with their peers and are among the class leaders. Those receiving the achievement award were recognized for their academic improvement in the classroom and hard work.
    Here is a list of the award winners at last week’s program.
