Ambassadors awards 50 scholarships to celebrate 50th year in business

Spokane's People to People Ambassador Programs, run by Ambassadors Group, has handed out 50 full travel scholarships as part of its celebration of 50 years in business.

The publicly traded company is a for-profit provider of global student travel, themed to education and cultural exchange.

The scholarships were awarded to one student in all 50 states, and a press release said the idea was meant to "further the organization's long-term goal of building cultural awareness and global understanding." 

The winning students received a place on their local Student Ambassador delegation traveling to destinations such as EuropeAustraliaChina and South Africa this summer. 

The sweepstakes were open to full-time students in grades 5 through 12 who entered an online submission form.

Winners were chosen from more than 60,000 entrants and were selected randomly.
