On March 19, the Woods Foundation issued a solicitation to superintendents or principals of all school districts having school buildings in Logan County, requesting that the schools submit a grant application for each building located in Logan County to the Woods Foundation for the improvement of technology. The foundation committed to provide grants of up to $20,000 for each building located in Logan County if their grant applications were approved.

There are 18 school buildings in Logan County, representing 11 different school districts. The school districts were given a deadline of May 1 for submission of a grant application. All school districts having buildings in Logan County submitted grant applications, representing 18 educational buildings.

All 18 of the grant applications submitted by the 11 different districts were approved by the board of directors. A total of $360,000 in grants was awarded by the foundation.
