Charleston, WV (AP) -- The West Virginia School Building Authority has awarded $124.2 million for school construction projects across the state.

Authority members approved the grants Monday.

Some grants are for one year and others are two-year grants.

A list posted on the agency's web site shows that Marshall County received the largest amount, more than $23 million over two years.

The funding will be used to build a new Cameron High School.

Putnam County received more than $21 million over two years for a countywide building program.

Putnam's funding is contingent upon county voters approving a bond.
