NIBCA Hands Out Scholarships

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Five students are finding it a little easier to pay for college after a group of local contractors give them scholarships for perusing careers in construction.

The Northern Illinois Building Contractors Association handed out $20,000 in scholarships to five Stateline students going to school in Illinois. The association says they do this to try and encourage these students to stay in our area once they finish school. The organization has given close to $150,000 in scholarship money to area kids since 2009.
