BLOOMFIELD, N.Y. -- Three school districts across the state are being honored for their focus on science and technology-related programs and one of them is in our area. 

Members of the Bloomfield Central School District were in Albany to receive the "Be the Change for Kids" Innovation Award. 

SUNY Polytechnic says Bloomfield's unique programs encourage kids to become problem solvers and make inventions. 

That includes building games and constructing bridges. 

The winning districts each receive $5,000.
