Washington County Public Health recently received an award during a conference held in Ames. Lynn Fisher with Public Health says they received the Excellence in Physical Activity Award by the state Department of Public Health Bureau of Nutrition and Health Promotion.

This was given in recognition of their Safe Routes to School projects in Kalona, Wellman and at Lincoln Elementary in Washington.

Kalona received over $141,000 from the Iowa Transportation Commission for their program while the projects in Wellman and at Lincoln Elementary recently mapped the routes toward a grant for their projects.
