2019 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.

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

Essay Topic: The cost of everything in winter recreation over the past ten years has skyrocketed. Snowmobiling is an expensive sport when you take into consideration all things connected to it. Groomers and all their attachments, the ones doing the grooming, a home for the groomer, sno-parks, plowing, administration, trail con-struction/maintenance, and the list goes on. Money does not grow on trees in the USA or Canada. Even when we find money to help our cause, we run into roadblocks because of the origin of the items we are trying to buy. There must be a better way.

Essay Challenge: In the USA and Canada, there is money avail-able to support our needs in the snowmobile world. Finding it, qualifying it, and acquiring it is the beginning of your challenge. See list below:
1. Where traditionally do the funds come from for your local
and State/Provincial snowmobile needs?
2. What are the funds available to be used on?
3. How do you petition for these funds?
4. Are there funds available that are not being petitioned for
in your area?

Finally, can you share with us your thoughts and ideas of how to financially support our cause for the next generation of snowmobilers?
