Lester Prairie School District recognizes the strong community support and the success it creates for our students who have gone on to participate in regional, state, national, and international tournament competitions regularly. During the 2018-2019 school year, LP Schools began a very successful robotics program which competed at the sectional level and won the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award. Since May 2018, other state, national, and international competitors include Cross Country, Football, Spelling Bee, Future Problem Solvers, and more. Lester Prairie uses #LPStrongerTogether to represent the strength of the school and community.
