The “Student of the Month” is awarded through a partnership of Heartland and KJAM Radio in Madison, and recognizes exceptional students in one of five area school districts.  Heartland provides wholesale power to the cities of Arlington, Colman, Howard, Madison and Volga, all of which are in the KJAM listening area.  Each month of the school year, Heartland will present an outstanding student from one of these schools with a recognition certificate and a small token, and advertisements announcing the winning student will air on KJAM radio for one week.  Officials from each participating school nominate students for the award.  This is the fourth year Heartland and KJAM have teamed up to offer this program.
