Steamboat Springs Middle School's Swedish exchange program will end this year

For the past 20 years, the Steamboat Springs Middle School has collaborated with Helenelundsskolan, a kindergarten through ninth-grade school in Sollentuna, Sweden, for an annual short-term exchange. The program began as a teacher exchange, and after four years evolved into a student exchange. Each year, about 30 girls and eight boys in seventh grade apply for a chance to travel to Sweden the following year. The four girls and four boys who are selected for the honor each are paired with a Swedish student.
