  • WIAA Announces Third Annual Smart Choices Scholarship Opportunity
    10/1/2014

     


    RENTON, Wash. –
    The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA), Dairy Farmers of Washington, and Les Schwab Tires are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Smart Choices College Scholarship.

    The Smart Choices Scholarship recognizes one female and one male high school student for their achievements in athletics/activities, the community, and the classroom.  The selected recipients will receive a $5,000 college scholarship that will be presented to them at the WIAA Hall of Fame Banquet held at the Renton Pavilion Event Center in May.

    Beginning last year, the Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab Tires sponsored an additional $8,000 in Smart Choices scholarship money for the remaining four finalists from each gender.  Each of the eight finalists will receive a $1,000 scholarship to the college or university of their choice.

    “The generosity the Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab Tires display by increasing the scholarship money is incredible,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said.  “The Association receives applications from many deserving students and the more students and WIAA member schools that can be recognized with this great initiative, the better.”

    Applicants have until April 1, 2015 to submit their applications.  In addition to a series of background questions, each applicant will be required to write an essay or provide a personal statement video about “How you plan to use your education to benefit others.”  The judging criteria is based on 35 percent athletic/activity excellence, 35 percent academic achievement, 15 percent leadership, 10 percent citizenship/community service, and five percent on originality/creativity of the student’s essay or video.  The application for the Smart Choices Scholarship Fund is available online at www.wiaa.com/smartchoices.

    Representatives of the WIAA, Dairy Farmers of Washington and Les Schwab Tires determine the final scholarship awards. “The Dairy Farmers of Washington believe it is important to support and foster opportunities for young men and women in our communities to reach their potential both on the field and in the classroom, especially since they will be tomorrow’s leaders in Washington State and across the nation.  Our co-title sponsorship of the WIAA with a respected partner like Les Schwab Tires gives the dairy producers in Washington State the opportunity to do that”, said Jeff Steele; Director of Business Development for the Dairy Farmers of Washington.

    Out of nearly 400 applications in 2014, Drew Wallen of Auburn Riverside, currently attending Central Washington University and Jenna Moser of Colton, currently enrolled at the University of Washington were selected as the winning recipients in 2014.

    “At Les Schwab, we believe in supporting organizations that teach lessons about responsibility, hard work and serving the community – values the company believes in,” said Andy Sherry; Regional Manager. “We’re proud of our relationships with the WIAA and the Dairy Farmers of Washington, because it does just that. And we’re excited to see the excellent opportunities that the Smart Choices scholarships provide to so many deserving students.”
