Posted: Updated:

A film that has been educating and empowering women of all ages globally is coming to the Midwest Theater for one day this weekend.
 
The movie Girl Rising tells the stories of nine girls from around the world who face and overcome challenges on the path toward getting an education.

The Scotts Bluff County mentoring program TeamMates is encouraging girls in the valley not to miss out on this movie that will be showing on Sunday.

One mentor says there is a continued need to motivate young girls in the panhandle.

Terry Smith says the girls in this movie will change young girls' lives, their families and their community.
 
"They're inspirational," said Smith. "They're captivating, they're enduring, they are just daring girls and they just win your heart over and they are so happy and so excited about their life and their education."
 
The Midwest Theater is showing Girls Rising at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow.
