Congratulations to the 100 schools that have won a field trip transportation grant to visit our Ohio Judicial Center! It was a difficult process to winnow down the 250 applications that were received by the deadline. As you know, we had only 100 grants available worth up to $400 each.
Our grant winners were selected by the Visitor Education Center based upon need, and we are happy to report that classes which would otherwise have had a very difficult time in reaching the home of the Supreme Court of Ohio now will have the chance to do so.
We are grateful to the Ohio Judicial Center Foundation, which donated $30,000 to help off-set transportation costs. And we’re also glad that those who applied have shown that they value a visit to see us.
