VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Many students in Vigo County will soon be able to do some pretty cool projects.

The Vigo County Education Foundation gave out 155 grants on Wednesday.

They total over $91,000.

The grant money will go toward projects teachers or the schools have in the works.

School leaders say it would be harder to fund these projects without the help.

"It is very exciting. They have some creative ideas. And finding the money to be able to supplement what is already going on in the classroom and to add some extra fuel to that is awesome. Ad the education foundation has been great to supply that," Fuqua Elementary Principal, Mary Beth Harris said.

63 of this year's projects are new. Teachers had to apply to receive these grants.
