DELAVAN - College can be a huge financial weight on families, but one boy in Delavan had the chance to ease that burden by entering a national competition, and he won.

Logan seals is 9-years-old and just won a $5,000 scholarship in a national competition called the 'Afterschool Awards'.

He was the only kid from Illinois of the three finalists competing in the science category. Students apply based on their activities outside school. Seals' passion for agriculture and interest in cross pollination got him this far in the competition.
