We partner with over 30 nonprofits to create generosity experiences for all classrooms in the Wood River Valley. Students and teachers choose nonprofit projects to support both financially and with service time. These projects must impact the quality of life in Blaine County and have a demonstrable outcome during the school year. With the help of our generous investors Wow donates $25 on behalf of each student to the nonprofit they are working with. Last year the nonprofits presented over 65 projects to the students. As a result, students participated in over 10,000 hours of community service and were able to contribute $65,000 to support nonprofit projects throughout the valley.

Wow-students works with the classrooms of the Blaine County School District, Community School, Pioneer Montessori, Sage School and Syringa Mountain School.

2013 was the second year for wow-students. We engaged 53% of the students in Blaine County our fist year. It grew to 65% last year. Our goal for the 2014-2015 school year is for 80% of the students to participate. Please watch our four minute video showing the student’s experiences for this past year.

2012 was the inaugural year for wow-students. The easiest way to understand the project and its broad impact on the community is to watch our 11-minute year-end video. You can watch this video by clicking this link.
