SPIRIT OF SARAH SCHOLARSHIP


Summer 2015

 

  We are happy to announce that, in partnership with the ‘Sarah Burke Foundation‘, we are now accepting applications for the 2015 Momentum Camps ‘Spirit of Sarah Scholarship’. To honour and remember our much loved camper, long time coach and friend Sarah Burke, we are again awarding a Free Full Package Summer Camp to a female skier, who best embodies some or all of Sarah’s very special strengths and characteristics. One of the causes dear to Sarah’s heart was encouraging young girls to follow their dreams and believe in their skiing abilities. Sarah played a big part in getting our ‘Girls Week’ off the ground and inspired so many young women through her incredible skiing talent, but more importantly through her special personality, which showed modesty, kindness and a wonderfully positive approach to life. To learn more about Sarah’s incredible legacy please visit our tribute page and read the many stories from campers whom she inspired over the years. Previous winners include 16 year old Emma Stevens from Nova Scotia,15 year old Carly Lavieille from Ontario and 13 year old Elena Gaskell from Silverstar, BC, who all enjoyed an amazing week of training with some of the top female freestyle skiers in the world.

To apply for the scholarship, please send us a short video presentation (no longer than 5 minutes), showing why you deserve to be awarded the camp. The presentation should include an interview with yourself and your references such as your coaches, teachers or anyone else you feel could be persuasive in helping you win the scholarship. It could include action footage of skiing or other sports, be wildly creative or simple and straightforward, use graphics or voiceover…etc –  the choice is yours! Deadline for 2015 submission is April 30th, with the winner announced May 15th. Please send a link to your video file to info@momentumcamps.com. Scholarship includes one Full Package Camp to any 2015 youth session.
