OSSA will be offering a scholarship to either a graduating high school senior or a person currently enrolled in a college, technical or vocational program.  This will be a $2,000.00 grant and will be given to the winner regardless of other grants or scholarships that the student may also receive.


Requirements are as follows:

  1. The applicant must be a member of the Oregon State Snowmobile Association, that is also a member of the Western Chapter of Snowmobile Associations Inc.
  2. The applicant must submit the completed application form.
  3. The applicant must submit a resume detailing his/her involvement in snowmobiling, as well as extra-curricular/volunteer activities.
  4. The applicant must include an essay (subject on the application form).  The essay should be a minimum of 2 pages, double-spaced and typed. Keep in mind that a well-researched, comprehensive essay will undoubtedly be significantly longer, and we certainly encourage that.

Essay Topic:  In the U.S. and Canada, many of our snowmobile parking areas (sno-parks) and warming huts/shelters are being abused, littered in and vandalized by the public as well as our very own snowmobilers.

Essay Challenge:  What can we do to fix this?

1. In your own words explain why this is happening.

2. Is there a plan in place right now in your area to address this problem?

3. Develop a plan/program that could virtually eliminate or at least reduce the problems that we are experiencing in our sno-parks and warming huts/shelters.

4. Share with us how you would implement your solution and involve other snowmobilers to reach your goal.
