The Missouri Chamber’s Show-Me Scholars initiative is a program built around a course of study that encourages students to take more demanding classes in high school.
Business mentors from the local community provide guidance to students throughout high school to encourage them to strive to do more in high school by taking the Show-Me Scholars curriculum. The curriculum provides an education that better prepares students to enter a technical school, community college, a university or the workforce.
As an added bonus, students who successfully complete the Show-Me Scholars program are eligible to apply for a scholarship from the Show-Me Scholars Scholarship Fund for their post-secondary education.
A joint effort of school districts, local chambers of commerce and the business community, the Show-Me Scholars initiative is a proven way to show students the importance of challenging themselves for their future continued education and careers.
