World Cup speed skier Stacey Cook and Sun Valley Ski Tools (SVST) have partnered for the 11th year to offer a scholarship for U16 and U19 athletes. This year, they will once again be awarding six scholarships.
Recipients will receive $500 worth of ski tools and $500 worth of Race Service wax along with some other goodies. The application process has become more extensive over the years because of the sheer number of quality applicants.
“I know the application is challenging, but do your best to show me your true character, because it isn’t always the best skier, or the best essay that wins,” the U.S. Ski Team athlete wrote on her website. “Winners have shown willingness to help their communities, passion for skiing, effort in achieving their goals, sportsmanship, and maybe a bit of humor, too! If you have a great story, we want to know about it. Remember, this application is likely the only way we know you, so show us who you really are!”
SVST invents and manufactures some of the best ski tuning tools and wax in the world. They take great pride in making every effort to find products made in the U.S. The benefit of owning their own full production machine shop, housed in the same complex, allows them to manufacture many of their own tools. SVST also carries tuning gear from many other top brands.
Scholarship applications are due on Aug. 31, 2017, and the full application can be found here.
