Apply Now for MPW.70

MPW.70 will be held Sept. 23 - 29 in Mountain Grove, Missouri. This south-central community of 4,672 in Wright County will be the 50th different community to host MPW in our 70 years of having the workshop. Our headquarters will be in the downtown Event Center and we have already experienced tremendous support from local government officials and the local newspaper.

We are now accepting applications and may admit some participants early, but scholarships will not be awarded until after the application deadline of July 2.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
