Original work by Memphis artist Evelina Dillon
Each year, Memphis in May selects students from Memphis and Shelby County schools to participate in a unique opportunity to visit the present year’s honored country. The students live with host families, attends a local high school and experiences the sights, sounds, and culture of the honored country. The program is offered at no charge to the students and lasts for 10-12 days, enough time to give the students a true experience of the country without interfering with their school year.
In the spring of 2018, a group of high school juniors and seniors will immerse themselves in the Czech culture, and your students have the chance to be a part of it!
We look forward to celebrating Memphis in May’s 2018 honored country of the Czech Republic with you and your students this year!
The deadline for applications is Friday, December 1, 2017
