TEXARKANA -- Fourth graders have the chance to visit a Texarkana museum free of charge, thanks to an Arkansas nonprofit.
The Arkansas Community Foundation and the Texarkana Museums System announced they are underwriting a program called Passports for Museums, which will award up to 750 students and chaperones free field trips to any of the system's four properties: the Museum of Regional History, the Ace of Clubs House, the P.J. Ahern Home and Discovery Place Interactive Museum.
Grants are available for teachers at schools with a federal free reduced lunch ratio of at least 65%. Funded field trips can be scheduled for January through May.
Applications for Passports for Museums are open until Dec.15 at https://bit.ly/2XoJjBT. More information is available at (903) 793-4831 or Discovery@TexarkanaMuseums.org.
