Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Fargo teacher's "Pay it Forward" money, went through a 4th grade classroom's rigorous test before finding a home.

Julie Feske was the recipient of $500 from Bell State Bank's "Pay It Forward" program. She came up with 10 finalists for the money. Her 4th grade class spent several days looking at each organization, their mission, purpose, and how they help people in the community. They took notes. They had impassioned discussions. And they voted.

This morning, the class donated the money to the Make-A-Wish foundation. It was a lesson in decision making.
