The Deck Scholarship, which started in 1974, gives $1,200 a year for first place and $1,000 a year for second, for four years to students, based on scholastic ability.
This year first place went to Lauren Bauer of rural Hennepin and second place was awarded to Ryan Friel of Hennepin.
Both Bauer and Friel will attend Iowa State University next year, with Bauer majoring in business management and Friel majoring in public relations.
