2018 WASHINGTON STATE SNOWMOBILE ASSOCIATION SCHOLARSHIP
 
The Washington State Snowmobile Association will again be offering a scholarship to either a graduating high school senior or a person currently enrolled in college.  This will be a $2,000 grant and will be given to the winner regardless of other grants or scholarships that the student may also receive.

2. The applicant must submit the completed application form.
3. The applicant must submit a resume detailing his/her involvement in snowmobiling as well as extra-curricular activities.
4. The applicant must include an essay (see subject below).  The essay should be a minimum of 2 pages double-space and typed.  Keep in mind that a well-researched, comprehensive essay will undoubtedly be significantly longer and we certainly encourage that.

    An alternate will be picked if the winner should decide not to enroll in a college, technical or vocational program.

Essay topic:
    With so much new technology in the Snowmobile/Snow Bike/Winter Motorized industry, we are going places we never imagined 50 years ago. Consequently, some are going places they are not supposed to go. We have a trespassing problem i.e. Wilderness, wildlife winter range, private and non-motorized areas. Although these are ‘rogue events’, it affects everyone. The end result is ‘trail and area closures’. That said, even though we were not the offender, we need to come up with and incorporate solutions to the problem at hand.   

Essay Challenge: 
    Below is a list of traditional methods that have been used in the past to attempt to solve the problem. Please expound on each one by sharing your thoughts, both the Pros and Cons. Now, share with us some brand new ideas that will help minimize these incursions and keep our trails and areas open for the next generations to come. 
1. Through Law Enforcement.
2. Through Self-Policing.
3. Through Education.
4. Through Advertisement.
