Parkview Elementary School hosted an awards program for students Tuesday.
Students were recognized for good grades, good behavior, as well as being good citizens in their class.
However, more than just certificates were distributed. Students in each grade also had the opportunity to win a bike, tablet or Wal-Mart gift card.
"We're asking each of our students to work hard. If they make honor roll, read and pass area tests. We are asking them to not get any behavioral, office referrals, and if they do that their name goes in drawings. Every grade level is getting a chance," said principal, Rosalind Operton.
Operton says that giving prizes is a good way to encourage children to continue working hard.
