Education is the key to our future. That's why First Interstate Bank wants to help area schools "One Class at a Time." First Interstate Bank and local TV stations in the community have formed a partnership to show our commitment to education through our "One Class at a Time" weekly grant program. If you know of a class or program that could use some extra help, select your location, fill out the form, and help us help area kids "One Class at a Time."
Each week during the school year a representative from First Interstate Bank, a TV reporter, and photographer visit the classroom selected for that week's grant award. The teacher and class are presented with a check to assist the class in attaining their educational goal. The winning class is then featured on the news during the evening newscasts.
There are many different types of projects submitted! Some examples are: software and books for special projects, math education materials, choir and band music, science experiment kits, Physical Education supplies, maps, costumes and props for plays. Details including how the project will help students, how many students will benefit, and specific costs for the project are all helpful to the grant selection committee.
Applicants can apply online either by printing and mailing off an application or by filling it out online. It only takes a few minutes to fill out.
