USA BMX Announces Bob Warnicke Scholarship Winners

Gilbert, Arizona – May 11, 2016 – After a record year in scholarships awarded in 2015, USA BMX proudly announces that $45,500 has been awarded in Bob Warnicke Scholarships for 2016. Annually, funds are raised though the Warnicke Scholarship Race. This series of races was created to help fund The Bob Warnicke Memorial Scholarship Fund which assists students and their families in meeting the costs of undergraduate college education, trade school, etc. USA BMX/BMX Canada members who have a current USA BMX/BMX Canada membership or Track Operators/Officials who participate in BMX racing events sanctioned by USA BMX/BMX Canada are eligible to apply.

The Scholarship Program preserves Bob Warnicke's legacy of love by contributing to the futures of deserving USA BMX / BMX Canada members in his name.  This year 76 awards were given to recipients in 28 states and 1 Canadian province. 45 college or trade school bound students were first time recipients of the award. 20 students were second-year recipients, 10 were third-year recipients, and this year saw our first four-year recipient of the award. Awards ranged from $250 to $2,000.

“Each year the pool of scholarship candidates increases and the quality of applications continue to improve,” said BA Anderson, CEO of USA BMX.  “The selection process gets harder each year and we are grateful to all of our tracks that participate in the Warnicke Scholarship Race.  Through the efforts of the tracks and private donors, we are able to continue to award these deserving students.”
