The Memphis In May International Festival will honor Panama next spring, and they're now taking applications from local high school students for study-abroad opportunities there.
The Memphis In May Student Exchange Program will send students to Panama for 10 to 12 days next spring to learn about its history and heritage.
Local public and private school students in the 11th and 12th grade can submit a written application, an essay, and a letter of recommendation from their school by November 22nd for a chance to qualify for the trip. Students will be chosen based on grades, community involvement, and speaking and writing skills.
Applications are available now on the Memphis In May website.
