The Washington State National Science Foundation received $850,000 to expand a winemaking program to high school students. The program is developed at paving a career path for minors interested in making wine. Although wine tasting for educational purposes is legal in the state of Washington, federal tax dollars should not fund this project. Similar programs in the area require students to try 600 wines a year. For a weekday school program, students could be given wine more than twice a day on average. There are many programs for high school students that could use $850,000 dollars more effectively.
