BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- The Chrysler Foundation has awarded a $5,000 grant to support the Belvidere, Belvidere North and North Boone High School's robotics team.

According to a press release, the grant will help offset some costs including registration fees, parts and materials and team apparel. They are among over 40 high schools nationwide to be granted funding from the Chrysler Foundation.

If any teams sponsored by Chrysler qualify for the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology Championship in late April, the teams will receive part of a $15,000 fund to support students through the event.
