As students start their summer vacation, a handful of them will have new bikes to ride.
Thanks to Hy-Vee, and Variety-the children's charity, 14 kids got new bikes through the "Bikes For Kids" program.
This program provides recreational activity opportunities to special needs and underprivileged kids.
For a chance at one of those bikes, kids had to apply, and write an essay.
Not only did they get a new bike, but also a lock and helmet for safety.
"Cause the helmet protects your skull and it will protect your brain, and so, if you didn't have a helmet, and you went down the hill, and you had no helmet, and you fell off your bike, your head would hurt a lot," Cameron Buchann, Sioux City, said.
Before they got to test out their bike, the winners signed a pledge stating that safety comes first.
