Cooper received a Silver Banner and Armstrong received a Bronze as part of the program's Students in Action program. The program trains student leaders to effectively engage their school communities in meaningful volunteer service that positively impacts the greater community. High school students, with the assistance of adult sponsors, participated in service-based learning utilizing three key program pillars guided by seven achievable goals. Those three program pillars include developing student leaders in service, engaging others to make an impact on the world for better and becoming role models in community service.

"We congratulate our Cooper in Action and Falcons in Action teams for their awards. They are leaders in service-learning in our district," said Dr. Aldo Sicoli, superintendent of Robbinsdale Area Schools. "Their volunteer service and leadership development is certain to make a positive impact on the greater community."
