Education is the key to our future
Montana's News Station and First Interstate Bank have formed a partnership to show our commitment to education by offering a weekly grant program "One Class at a Time."
If you know of a class or school program that could use some extra help, please log in, fill out the application and help us help Montana kids "One Class at a Time."
What is "One Class at a Time"
"One Class at a Time" is a joint effort between Montana's News Station and First Interstate Bank to help fulfill needs of area schools.
Each week during the school year, a representative from First Interstate Bank and a Q2 reporter and photographer visit the selected classroom to receive that week's grant. The teacher and class are presented a check for $300 to assist the class in attaining their goals. The winning class is then featured during the Monday 5:30 PM and 10:00 PM newscasts.
Who can apply a One Class at a Time grant?
Teachers, parents, students or anyone who is aware of a special project that would enhance the educational objectives in a classroom can apply from August 1st through April 1st. This program is currently available to schools located in the KTVQ viewing area. Please contact Pam Hofferber at email@example.com or 406-252-5611 if you have questions.

How often can I apply?
There is no limit to the number of projects or times you can apply. The applications are considered for the entire 2012-2013 academic school year.
Who determines which class will receive the award?
The awards are chosen by a committee that meets the second week of each month. The committee members include employees of Montana's News Station and First Interstate Bank, as well as a retired high school principal and a retired elementary principal.
How many applications do you receive?
We received more than 90 applications during the 2011-2012 school year. Each year we receive applications for worthy projects that we may not be able to fund due to time constraints. Please re-apply if your special project was not chosen in the past. Our goal is to enhance our area students' educational experience "One Class at a Time."
