Foundation awards grant to North Vermillion High School for science fair

North Vermillion High School is the proud recipient of a $500 grant for its annual Science Fair.  The grant was made available by the Vermillion County Community Foundation.   

According to Dale White, CEO of the Community Foundation, “The Foundation has enjoyed sponsoring the Fair each year and we are excited that they have added Art to the event.  We like the idea of a STEAM Fair, which includes the traditional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math projects. 

Jo Spurr, Science Fair Coordinator says, “Increasing awareness and knowledge in the STEAM fields is our main goal with both students and the community.”

“There is an ever increasing need for employees who are trained and experienced in the STEAM fields. We hope not only to spark some career interests with our students but also to bring awareness to community members of the opportunities our students have available to them at North Vermillion which encourages growth in these fields.”

Vermillion County Community Foundation, established in 1998, seeks to better the Vermillion County area by connecting people who care with causes that matter by making grants to non-profit organizations and awarding college scholarships to high school graduates.
