    Hinkle picEthan Hinkle was the winner of tickets to a KC Royals game of his choice!  All three boys, Ethan, Austin, and Braedon Hinkle participated in summer reading and met their individual goal!

    Blake Henn was the winner of tickets to a Storm Chasers game in Omaha!

    Other children who received circus tickets for meeting their goal were Keyera and Kierstyn Eisenhauer, Chloe and Max Henn, Callie Heithoff, and Amanda Fritzen!

    Skylar and Brooklyn Meis also met their goal and chose a prize!

    Each of these children had their name submitted for a chance at a $529 NEST scholarship as well.
