Hailing from Montana, 6-piece bluegrass country rockers Official Mission Mountain Wood Band will make their long awaited return to Missoula for a special concert benefitting the Montana World Affairs Council.
Mark your calendar and save the date – Sunday, March 3rd. You won’t want to miss it. Global education for Montana youth needs our support and this event is all about it!
Following the concert, the World Affairs Council hosts the 15th Annual Academic WorldQuest (March 4th & 5th). This year, a record number of high school students signed up, over 300 from all across Montana and many of the schools will need scholarship support to get the students here to Missoula. They’re coming from Browning and Fort Peck and many other very rural schools and that means a lot of miles for them to travel.
Scholarship support is needed for the following:
* Bus Transportation (bus rentals and gas)
* Bus Drivers
* Lodging (area hotels are providing discounts, but the students still need help)
* Substitute Teachers
For many schools, those which are very rural and remote, and for many reservation schools, the budgets are extremely limited and they have to request scholarship support to attend. If you can help with a scholarship donation, we can get these students here for Academic WorldQuest and introduce them to a truly global landscape. There is no other event like this in Montana where students meet other international students – they meet diplomats and global leaders and filmmakers and governmental leaders including our very own!
We really can make a difference and we are very grateful to you for your support! Thank you so much.
