There will be 3 parts to your application. We will need some basic information about you that you will fill out in the Application Form. Next you will have the written portion of the Application. This includes a few short answer questions, 2 essay questions (100 words minimum), and challenge choice with 4 fun options to choose from. The written portion is what will really help us get to know you. Third, we will ask you to provide 3 letters of recommendation; one from your coach, one from another adult (like a parent, teacher, mentor, employer, man at the ice cream shop, you get the idea) and one from a peer. Pretty simple, right? We don’t want our application to be too hard to discourage you from applying, but I will tell you that effort is always obvious in the winning applications. Here are some other tips:
- Be ethical. Winning applications are filled out by the athletes solely. We know you are busy but if you want to win you need to make sure you put in the effort. Applications that are filled out by parents are usually obvious and we are not afraid to verify with multiple sources to find out who filled out the application.
- Be yourself. Winning applications are able to express an athlete’s true personality. Don’t write what you think we want to hear. Write what YOU believe. Remember, this is likely the only chance we have to meet you and we want to know the real you! Feel free to add any supporting material to your application.
- Send in a complete application before the deadline. Sending in an application in multiple email results in much confusion for us and the chance of your application being viewed incomplete. We also appreciate promptness on your application. Leaving it to the last minute stresses you out and makes our mailman angry when he has to deliver all the applications on the last day. No exceptions.
- Application must be send by email by October 31th 2014.
10 athletes will be choose by November 15th 2014.
