The All-American Boy and Girl Awards program recognizes young men and women in the Third Congressional District of Illinois who are involved in their community while excelling in the classroom and participating in extracurricular activities. All finalists received Congressional Recognition for their participation. Two students from St. Patricia School were recently honored at the prestigious All American Boy and Girl Ceremony hosted by Congressman Dan Lipinski. Eighth graders Ginni Bouck and Martha Kowalski were recognized as finalists in the competition. No small feat considering there were more than 1,000 applicants from over 100 schools. Congratulations to Ginni and Martha! We are very proud of you!
