For the last three years, KXLF and Montana Tech have partnered to bring you the One Class at a Time program, which awards classrooms in Southwest Montana $250 to help fund class projects.

The classroom presentation is filmed and featured on KXLF’s Monday night newscasts at 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., and again on Tuesday during ‘Montana This Morning’.


What projects are considered?

Projects must impact the classroom for more than just the current year. We want you to be creative. We’ve received applications for book materials, iPads and technology, musical instruments, math manipulates, listening centers, video recorders, classroom games, wooden blocks, STEM projects… be original and creative! 

Who determines which class will receive the award?

A committee consisting of Montana’s Television Station employees, Montana Tech employees and retired local educators.

Notes & Tips on Applications

  • Applications are received from teachers and administrators! Applications are accepted throughout the school year.
  • There is no limit to the number of times an individual may apply.
  • Please be as specific as possible on your application. Price breakdown, explanation of use, and the number of students who would benefit from the grant are valuable details to include.
  • The goal of the award is to cover the full amount of the project. If the cost of the project exceeds $250, please explain how the remaining costs will be covered.
  • Projects must be long-lasting (more than just the current year) and make an impact in the classroom. The goal is to equip a classroom with supplies for repeated use versus a one-time outing or non-­reusable supplies. We are unable to fund field trips.
  • Videos of prior awards can be found on the One Class at a Time page on under the community tab.
