Warsaw manufacturing class competes for national grant

WARSAW, Ind. (WPTA21) — Voting opens Wednesday in a national competition for grants to support community projects – and in the running is a one-of-a-kind class out in 21Country.

Up for grabs? Twenty-five thousand dollars.

The top 200 causes for the State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant competition will be whittled down to 40. The 40 projects with the most votes each receive a $25,000 grant.

Hoping to make the cut: a manufacturing class at Warsaw High School’s Area Career Center.

The class teaches kids to design and build skateboards, snowboards and surfboards in an effort to help meet a high demand for skilled manufacturing and biomedical engineering workers in Warsaw. However, the cost of materials and maintenance of equipment exceeds the standard class budget.

You can help by voting for the class here:

Voting ends at midnight on August 23rd.
