Gayville-Volin Wins Grant For New Outdoor Track
A South Dakota community is getting some big money to build an outdoor track.
The Gayville-Volin school district is getting a $25,000 grant from State Farm Insurance to build the new facility.
Gayville-Volin submitted an application for the grant as part of State Farm's Neighborhood Assist initiative, that lets Facebook users decide which projects are most worthy.
According to State Farm:
Nearly 100,000 people took to Facebook during the nearly three week period. Gayville-Volin received 51,452 votes, the seventh most votes in the program.
Gayville-Volin does not currently have a track. With the money and an additional fund raising campaign, the community plans to build an outdoor track for all ages.
More than 3,000 submissions were received.
