CHEWELAH-- A Chewelah student who is also a major Honor Flight fundraiser is a top contender in a national contest.
Justin Peterson, 12, was one of people from across the country recognized with the Safeco Insurance Community Hero Award. The award got him $5,000 for Honor Flight.
In late October he competed with the others for an even bigger prize.
Peterson is on a mission to bring money to the men and women who've sacrificed so much.
Whichever submission gets the most clicks in the Safeco Community Hero Contest wins $10,000 for their charity. That could send 10 vets to D.C.
Justin has raised nearly $35,000 for the Inland Northwest Honor Flight.
