January and February bring music contests, speech contests, basketball games and wrestling matches to the students in the ADM Community School District. All these activities contribute to the education and growth of the students. The ADM teachers name students to receive special recognition in their designated areas. Local businesses then make a contribution to the ADM Scholarship Foundation honoring these students. The following are the students honored for January.

All the contributions given to the Foundation are invested and the income is used to provide scholarships to graduating seniors of the ADM School District going on to post-secondary education. Over $650,000 has been given in scholarships since the Foundation’s inception in 1985.
