EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A local 6th grade teacher is honored with an educational grant.

Wednesday afternoon Randi Stanley, a teacher at South Middle School in Eau Claire, received a $2,500 grant from Farmers Insurance.

It's part of the insurer group's "Thank America’s Teachers Program."

Stanley says she's planning on purchasing two Ozobot Evo robots, educational coding robots for her students.

She says the robots will be used as an introduction to computer science.

Stanley says she was surprised when she found out she won.

“I thought no way,” said Stanley. “I thought it was a long shot knowing you're aiming, this is open to the whole United States, so the chances of you winning well it's kind of all through your fingers and I was constantly posting on social media saying, ‘Please vote. Remember to vote today! Did you vote today?”

Stanley is among the second group of 60 winners nationally to receive the educational grant.
