ROSCOE - A local elementary school receives nomination as a Blue Ribbon School.
Prairie Hill School says they were recently notified they're a nominee for the 2014 National Blue Ribbon Award given out by the U.S. Dept. of Education. Only 16 schools, both public and private, in the entire state can qualify. The field also included middle and high schools.
The process to name a Blue Ribbon winner isn't a short one. Kevin Finnegan, principal at Prairie Hill, says they'll find out in September if they won.
