The Next Project
Supporting young, outstanding talent in the Southeast Missouri region.
Recognizing the world changers here at home.
Open to those ages 18 and under in the Southeast Missouri region, The Next Project aims to recognize students for their hard work and commitment to excellence both in and out of the classroom. The selected recipients will be featured in The Scout Daily Email, through social media and during an exclusive event this fall.
Next recipients will then be paired with local mentors to support their vision, fostering local talent retention and attraction.
Next Project mentors + sponsors create an ongoing partnership that aims to grow and retain local talent through college and adulthood, providing valuable insight and guidance to help them thrive and continue to achieve their goals.
