BUFFALO, NY – April 3, 2019 – LEKI is excited to announce the third annual LEKI Full Ride Scholarship to the Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp, which will award one deserving junior ski racer the ultimate opportunity to train with premier level coaches at one of the top summer training locations in the country. The scholarship includes registration fees for one week of camp at Mt. Hood, air travel to and from camp, and LEKI race gear.

U14 Grace Winklemann from Wisconsin was the winner of the 2018 LEKI Full Ride Scholarship. “Camp went very well and I am so grateful for the opportunity that you provided for me. I had lots of fun and became a better skier. Thank you so much for the new gear and this scholarship, I am so grateful,” said Winklemann.

LEKI has long supported all skiers, from those who are just cutting their teeth to those who have won World Championship titles and Olympic Gold Medals, including Ted Ligety. LEKI will offer this scholarship to one ski racer, male or female, who demonstrates not only financial need but also a commitment to hard work both on and off the slopes. Skiers are asked to submit a short essay on how they would benefit from a week at the camp and how they have been an asset to their community. Applications can be submitted through SkiRacing.com and will be accepted April 3 – 19.

The Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp runs four sessions in summer 2019. Visit their website Ligety Weibrecht Ski Camp | Summer Ski Racing Camps | Mt. Hood for more information.
