A 12-year-old Grand Forks girl has won a free trip to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Cindy Lim is one of 10 kids in the United States who was selected as a McDonald's Champion Kids.

Lim will serve as a youth correspondent at the Olympics.

She won the award by writing an essay explaining why she should represent Grand Forks and what the Olympic Values mean to her.

Today she was given the award at an assembly at her school.

“I wanted to show them what I thought of the Junior Olympics and what excellence and respect means,” says Lim.

Lim's essay beat out hundreds of other entries.

Her story was about her own experiences participating in Junior Olympic Skills Competitions.
