Unleashing possibilities for students through programs and recognition.

Students learn best when they ignite their brains around their passions and unleash the possibilities. Each year, Resource coordinates a series of events to engage, equip, and empower students beyond the classroom.

From Knowledge Bowl and the Central Minnesota Regional Spelling Bee to Project Earth, Resource works behind-the-scenes on many of the educational enrichment programs that you see in the news.

Resource also honors those students, educators, and support staff who are shining examples through three highly attended recognition events that celebrate successes across the region.
