RANTOUL -- Some teens are being honored for their help after the Gifford tornado. The county awarded 100 Lincoln's Challenge cadets with a special commendation Thursday.

They volunteered to deliver water and pick up debris after the November 17th storm. Cadets say they're used to volunteering, but this was a completely different experience. Those cadets helped for five days following the storms.
