Grand Prix Scholarship Winners 2015

The Grand Prix Series is the qualifying series to the Western Region Junior Championships for U18 and U21 athletes. The series continues with the Far West Tech and Far West Speed Finals. The Grand Prix series is scored for Srs/U21's and U18's as a series to qualify for scholarships to be used for the following season (15-16 season). The places are determined by adding up the total World Cup Points earned during ALL the races listed in the Grand Prix series for that season. Each race is scored by separating the field by gender into Srs/U21's and U18 classes. Foreign, out of Division, current USST and U16 participants in each race are removed and results are sorted by class prior to assigning World Cup Points for each race. Athletes must have competed in at least half of the scheduled Grand Prix races in order to qualify for the scholarships.

Congratulations to this years hard working athletes as they will receive scholarship funds to be used during the 2015-2016 season! Funds will be available beginning June 1st, 2016.
