The $200 stipend will be paid to the district through the monthly payment system once the protégé has successfully completed the program. It is then the obligation of the district to reimburse the protégé the amount they deem appropriate.

If you or someone you know is interested in being in the program, please complete the protégé application at http://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/mentoring-protegeapplication-fy15....  Please email the completed form to Chrissy Bashore at [email protected] as soon as possible, but no later than August 14, 2015.

Future Business Leaders of America, our largest division, was represented by 455 students and advisers from numerous public and private Missouri schools.  With fierce competition of over 8,000, Missouri was still able to take home 31 awards and $2,930 in scholarships.  Missouri took home gold in two of the new performance events – 3D Animation and Social Media Campaign, as well as eight awards at the Regional Meeting.
