According to a press release from Eaglecrest Ski Area, staff are excited once again to be holding the Annual Hilary Lindh Scholarship Competition. The Scholarship Competition is hosted by the Eaglecrest Board of Directors, which will award four 2013/2014 Season Passes. Two passes will be awarded to each division: kindergarten through fifth-grade and sixth through twelfth-grade.
Scholarship winners will be chosen based on scholastic achievement, competitive spirit, and financial need.
“We are looking for students whose competitive spirit reflects Hilary Lindh’s commitment to ski racing,” Eaglecrest Ski Area’s Community Outreach Supervisor Julie Jackson said in the release.
All applicants who turn in completed application packets and meet all judging criteria will receive an Eaglecrest lift ticket and equipment rental.
Applications are available at all Juneau Public Schools, Raven and IDEA Home School offices and online at SkiJuneau.com. Applications should be submitted to Eaglecrest via fax, e-mail, or mail. Alternatively, applications may be submitted in person at the Eaglecrest Ticket Window or any Juneau Public School by noon, Friday, Dec. 5.
The 2013 recipients will be announced via SkiJuneau.com on Monday, Dec. 16, 2013.
The Hilary Lindh Scholarship Competition was established in 1992 in recognition of Lindh’s Silver Medal in the 1992 Winter Olympics.
Lindh started skiing at Eaglecrest at a young age and began dedicating years of hard work to downhill ski racing. Lindh was inducted into the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame in April 2006 and the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame in February 2009.
