Up to $400 is awarded annually to two young people, ages 12-16 who best articulate their desire and need to pursue an experience in the outdoors.

The Kid for the Wild Scholarship is a tribute to the memory and vision of Walkin’ Jim Stoltz and his "kid for the wild" spirit.  Jim was a singer-songwriter, poet, photographer, painter, and long distance hiker from Big Sky and Helena, Montana. 

Jim hiked over 28,000 miles through the wilderness of North America – a true mountain man who experienced the wonder and wisdom of natural world with the heart of a child. Jim performed at many schools throughout the United States for children of all ages; 2 to 92.
