2017's Award Winner



NWVE is honored and excited to announce the recipient of 2017's NWVE Scholarship Award.  All applicants were excellent and highly qualified.  We know the Cross Country Skiing Community is full of exceptional people, but all of the candidates went above and beyond in so many ways.  With the level of commitment, contribution and ambitions in all the activities, causes and charities these applicants were affiliated with, they are destined for success.  The board found themselves torn in only being able to award one scholarship among so many deserving applicants.  A good problem to have. 

Alexandra Lawson has been selected as 2017's recipient of the NWVE Scholarship.  In addition to her numerous Nordic Skiing achievements, Alexandra has also received commendation for academic excellence.  She has made time to serve and inspire the community through volunteer work at local hospitals and youth programs that encourage children to become more involved with math, science and technology.  Alexandra is looking forward to continuing on her phenomenal trajectory at Middlebury College.

Congratulations!

NWVE Board of Directors

2016's Award Winner



NWVE is honored and excited to announce the recipient of this year's NWVE Scholarship Award.  All applicants were excellent and highly qualified.  We know the Cross Country Skiing Community is full of exceptional people, but all of the candidates went above and beyond in so many ways.  With the level of commitment, contribution and ambitions in all the activities, causes and charities these applicants were affiliated with, they are destined for success.  The board found themselves torn in only being able to award one scholarship among so many deserving applicants.  A good problem to have. 


After extended deliberation it was decided to award Forrest Hamilton.  Forrest has been a fixture in the Vermont and New England skiing scene for most of his life.  In addition to his clear dedication to competing in the sport he has done much to help with local youth and school programs.  Forrest has also made Eagle Scout dedicating his project to Camp Ta Kum Ta.  

Forrest will be attending Bates College in the fall where his drive will guide him to continued success and higher aspirations.  

Congratulations!
