2020 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.
Requirements are as follows:
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.
5. The application must be received by WSSA by March 31, 2020. Please mail or e-mail application to:
Shammi Ruggles, WSSA Scholarship Chair
2505 W. Waikiki Rd.
Spokane, WA 99218
WSSA will the send the winner to the Western Chapter Scholarship Chair no later than April 30th. The winner of the Western Chapter Scholarship will be announced at the International Snowmobile Congress in June, 2020.
The winner of the WSSA Scholarship will also have the opportunity to compete for the $1,000 C.J. Ramstad Scholarship offered by the International Snowmobile Media Council.
An alternate will be picked if the winner should decide not to enroll in a college, technical or vocational program.
