The Logan County Education Foundation awarded $19,506 in education grants to provide area students innovative learning experiences in Logan County classrooms during the 2013-2014 school year.
The Building Grants are sponsored by the Logan County Education Foundation and made possible by the community and corporate support of LCEF fundraising activities. A grant from the Honda of America Foundation assisted with funding the Building Grants.
LCEF manages Dedicated Grants which are privately funded by individuals or organizations and are awarded on a competitive basis for individual classroom or teams of teachers to implement. This year a grant from the Dayton Power and Light Foundation funded a science based grant in each of the four school districts.
