The Scholarship Competition, hosted by the Eaglecrest Board of Directors, awarded four 2013/2014 Season Passes. Two passes were awarded to each division: kindergarten through fifth grade and sixth through 12th grade.
Scholarship winners were 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 a press release announcing the competition.
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.
