Bonner County Sportsmen’s Association Scholarships Available 

Students are encouraged to apply for the Bonner County Sportsmen’s Association (BCSA) Scholarships, given in honor of Leo Hadley and other outstanding sportsmen and women in Bonner County. Two $500 scholarships for use during the 2011-2012 academic year are available.  Bonner County residents who are graduates of, or who are currently enrolled in a public, private, or home school program, and who have successfully completed a Hunter Education course are eligible.

Applicants are encouraged to apply by filling out an application which is available by calling 208-266-0141 and requesting an application, or writing a letter of request to “BCSA Scholarship, PO Box 1011, Sandpoint, ID  83864”.  Applications will also be available at the BCSA Gun ‘n Horn Show, March 4, 5, and 6, 2011 at the Bonner County Fairgrounds.  Students planning to advance their education, and who are interested in outdoor and conservation activities, have completed a Hunter Education program, and may have personal or family participation in local sportsmen and civic organizations are encouraged to apply.  The scholarship is open to adults as well as youth, and the scholarship recipients will be chosen by June 1, 2011.

Postmark deadline for application is April 15, 2011.

The scholarship was originally started as a memorial to sportsman and community leader Leo Hadley, who passed away in 1998. Leo was well-known for his community service.  His love for Lake Pend Oreille and hunting and fishing activities led to his long term involvement and service to Hunter Education, the Bonner County Sportsmen’s Association, the Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and many other organizations.

The scholarship has been expanded to honor and memorialize other outstanding sportspersons. The recipients for the 2010-2011 school year are Carolyn Dexter, Sagle, a 2007 Sandpoint High School graduate who currently attends the University of Idaho, and Bryce D. Bare, Clark Fork, a 2010 Clark Fork High School graduate who is attending the University of Montana. 

Contributions to the scholarship fund can be made by sending your donation to the Bonner County Sportsmen’s Association, Scholarship Fund, PO Box 1011, Sandpoint, ID  83864.
