A free civic videotape entitled, "Where We Stand", was recently donated to high schools and others in this area by Sioux Valley Health System of Sioux Falls in cooperation with the Committee for Citizen Awareness. It will benefit nearly 20,000 high school students, as well as community and junior college students and others in the at-large Congressional District of South Dakota. The videotape will give them the opportunity to learn more about our American system of democracy and free enterprise and our resulting standard of living. It includes information pertaining specifically to the at-large Congressional District. To help make the video more pertinent to our area, it features appearances by Representative Stephanie Herseth and Mr. Kelby Krabbenhoft, President & CEO of Sioux Valley Health System.

Krabbenhoft said, "Sioux Valley Health System is pleased to provide the support necessary to make this educational videotape available throughout our congressional district. We became involved with this public-service project partly to help people have a better understanding about what it means to live in the United States, specifically in terms of our standard of living. The videotape we are sponsoring compares the United States to the rest of the world, primarily in terms of one major indicator – our health and well-being. It also provides a comparison in terms of education and modern conveniences."

Sioux Valley Health System has provided this educational videotape for our area, as have other prominent corporations, universities and organizations in other locales across the country. Over 30 million people have seen these award-winning educational videotapes nationwide thanks to the support provided by over 3,000 corporations and others in the United States.
