SIDNEY HERALD Montana WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2013 9A The Governor's Office of Community Service, Mon- tana Campus Compact and Student Assistance Foun- dation announces that the 2013 Youth Serve Montana Scholarship is now avail- able for up to 100 Montana high school seniors. It is the eighth year for this exciting scholarship opportunity aimed at students dedicated to volunteering. The Youth Serve Montana Scholarship rewards stu- dents who have volunteered more than 100 hours in the last year and who want to further their education in state. This year, 100 high school seniors will receive $1,000 toward continued education at one of Mon- tana Campus Compact's public, tribal, private or community colleges and universities. "This is a great opportuni- ty to recognize students who are committed to service and to giving back to their communities," Gov. Steve Bullock said. "The Youth Serve Montana Scholar- ships honor these students' investment in our state and help them continue their education here in Mon- tana."
