From the September 14, 2015, Tama (Iowa) News Herald "National Lincoln Highway award to South Tama Elementary."
The 2015 National Lincoln Highway Association Award goes to the school's fifth graders, who as 4th graders researched and read stories about the famous road (which passes through their town, and, of course, has that wonderful bridge).
A $50 donation was made to the school and matched by principal Ben Adams. Teacher Darla Cory directed the class project. For the crafts and art section of the project, the students made a banner depicting the town's Lincoln Highway bridge. It is currently at the Tama County Administration building in Toledo.
