The camp is offered to high school students ranging from incoming ninth graders to outgoing graduates. If you know of any students interested in broadcasting, photography, videography, design, sports commentary or any other form of media production, I hope you will direct them to our website DigitalExpressionsCamp.com.

The camp will be held from June 26-July 1 and will feature hands-on learning opportunities, collegiate-level instruction and field trips and visits featuring industry professionals.  Also, since the camp is hosted at UNK, students get the experience of living on campus for a week and getting the college experience. Registration is open now and is open until May 31.

We strive to make our camp as affordable as possible. If they apply for the $100 scholarship (which we give out generously), a camper can stay on campus, get three meals a day, and have a great camp experience for the price of $290.  If they have a place to stay off-campus, they can attend for $130 (after the scholarship). If there is a student who needs more assistance, please let us know.

Lastly, while we do not know what the future holds in regards to COVID-19 this summer, we plan to take the direction of the local health department and the University to ensure we are offering a safe environment.

BigFuture Scholarships Are Now Available to Class of 2023 Students

BigFuture™ is here to connect students, families, and educators with tools and resources to explore careers, plan for college, and pay for college. In early 2022, you and your students will see a new user experience that includes a personalized dashboard with steps to plan for life after high school. Informed by student and educator feedback, we’ll continue to evolve BigFuture in the months ahead.

Ahead of these changes, this week, we’re launching BigFuture Scholarships (formerly known as College Board Opportunity Scholarships) for the class of 2023 to reward efforts to plan for college on BigFuture. Here’s what to expect for this year’s juniors:

Two $40,000 winners each month: BigFuture will reward progress wherever students are on their college journey. Each month, between January 2022 and February 2023, BigFuture will award two $40,000 scholarships and hundreds of $500 scholarships to students in the class of 2023 who complete steps on BigFuture.

Simple participation: Juniors with a College Board account will be automatically entered into monthly drawings for $40,000 and $500 scholarships when they complete steps. They can opt out of drawings at bigfuturescholarships.org/opt-out. There are no minimum GPA, essay, citizenship, or application requirements to earn an entry into monthly scholarship drawings.

More ways to earn $40,000: By completing ANY of the six scholarship steps on BigFuture, juniors will have a chance to win a $40,000 scholarship, in addition to $500. The more steps students complete and the earlier they start, the more chances they have to win.

Students whose families earn less than $60,000 a year will have extra chances to win scholarships. Encourage your students to earn their first entry for $40,000 and $500 scholarship drawings, beginning in January, by building a college list of six or more schools on BigFuture.

Visit this page to see the college planning steps that qualify students for entries in the monthly drawings. Feel free to use this videoeducator flyer (.pdf/1.80 MB), and student flyer (.pdf/2.83 MB) to spread the word about BigFuture Scholarships. Visit this resource page for more.

Omaha, NE 68114 

My name is Frankie. The chairman and I for the 2022 Nebraska Mission of Mercy would like to request your assistance. We are looking for students or facility volunteers for a few hours during the 2- day event. If any students need service hours or facility that is interested, we would love to have their
support. The volunteer shifts are in 4-hour increments. They may commit to 1 shift or as many as they would like. The mission requires about 800 volunteers to make it successful for the community. This free 2-day dental clinic incorporates a welcoming, unbiased environment for all in need. The population treated lack access to dental care and have little to no insurance. Please sign up on our website www.nebraskamissionofmercy.com or directly email the mission at nebraskamissionofmiercy@gmail.com.
In 2019 the Nebraska Mission of Mercy treated over 1,350 patients and provided $1 million dollars in free dental care to the community. Since 2005, The Nebraska Mission of Mercy has provided over $6 million in free dental care and helped over 14,000 people in our community.
