Utica, NY - The Oneida Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution announced the Good Citizens Awards at the Oneida COunty History Center on Saturday.

Six area high school seniors were selected as finalists based on their academic achievement, extra curricular activities and an essay contest. Three independent judges reviewed the candidates and one was selected to represent the area at the state level. Rachael Powles from Sauquoit Valley Central School was the first prize winner.

"Our first place winner goes on to NY State and applications come from all over the state," says event coordinator Cheryl Plescia. "The state then chooses a winner which then represents New York in Washington D.C. then there will be a winner that is nationally recognized. That would be at the Continental Congress in June of 2018."

The 2018 finalists:

Rachael Powles - Sauquoit Valley Central School
Elizabeth Militillo - Clinton Central School
Crystal Lin - Thomas R. Proctor School
Madden Barnes - Waterville Central School
