The Viking Sportsmen held their annual awards banquet to honor the youth in their Kids Food Plot program on March 3.

The program is for kids up to age 18 and celebrated its 27th year in 2013 with a total of 87 kids being involved. They helped plant 225 acres of food plots for wildlife across Douglas County. The Richard Klimek family has been represented in all of those 27 years and this year had 11 grandchildren in the program help plant four food plots.


The program is headed by Dwain Schutte and Belinda and Glenn Wink and is supported by donations of seed from local seed company representatives. Every kid who participated in the program received an award for their efforts at the banquet.
