School Cents add up for Eastern Iowa schools

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- 14 Eastern Iowa high schools got a cash boost Saturday thanks to the School Cents program.

The 14 schools received checks totaling around $20,000 at Lindale Mall in Cedar Rapids.

It's the 12th year for the program, which is designed to assist schools in funding programs.

Central City High School won first place this year, winning $7,100.

"We had a lot of students support at the school. We had a lot of students help with the publicity. We made a lot of posters we had a lot of community support as well... so everyone came together," said Kristina Merrit of Central City High School.

Prizes are awarded based on points built up between October 1 and the end of December.
