Each year, since 2005, the Gladbrook American Legion Auxiliary presents a Citizenship Award to a 8th grade student. The students are nominated by the staff based on their exemplary personal characteristics of respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, cooperation, and caring for others. Six students were nominated this year, Sadie Brockett, Samuel Cahalan, Paige Eiffler, Maxwell Schweppe, Hunter Smoldt, and Marissa Vaderkolk. Gladbrook Legion Auxiliary Americanism Chairman Lisa Reinhard, presented Paige Eiffler the 2014 Gladbrook Auxiliary Citizenship Award. Paige's name was engraved on the plaque which will be displayed at the G-R Middle School.
