Six Scholarships Up For Grabs
November is National Scholarship Month and nonprofit Reach Higher Montana is celebrating all month long with its annual Stick with Scholarships Campaign.
The campaign encourages all Montana high school students to place a student-designed Reach Higher Montana sticker on an appropriate surface, such as a water bottle or book cover, snap a photo and upload it to woorise. com/reachhighermontana/ stick-with-scholarships.
All participating students will be entered into a random drawing for one of six $500 scholarships. “This is purposefully an easy scholarship application and it is really fun to see the creative photos that students make to enter,” says Kelly Cresswell, RHM’s executive director.
The stickers for this year’s campaign are the winning designs from last spring’s Design- A-Sticker, Win-A-Scholarship campaign coordinated by Reach Higher Montana. Students from Billings, Bozeman, Hays-Lodgepole, Kalispell, Laurel, Red Lodge, Reed Point, Terry and Westby designed this year’s stickers, each receiving a scholarship award for their efforts. The winning sticker designs were selected from more than 400 designs submitted by Montana students.
All Montana high school counselors have received a supply of stickers to share with students, and anyone who did not receive a sticker can contact Reach Higher Montana to request more at info@reachhighermontana. org.
The Stick with Scholarships campaign is part of Reach Higher Montana’s efforts to help students access resources to continue their education. The Reach Higher Montana website provides access to a list of hundreds of scholarships for Montana students, and the organization posts new scholarship opportunities on its Facebook and Instagram pages every Thursday.
