EVENT: Harold Hunter Foundation Scholorship for NYC Youth

Harold Hunter Foundation Scholorship for NYC Youth

The Harold Hunter Foundation is proud to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, it will send ten inner-city NYC skateboarders to Pennsylvania’s Camp Woodward via its namesake Harold Hunter Foundation Woodward Scholarship fund.

The mission of the Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF) is to use skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills.  To that end, the Harold Hunter Foundation teamed up with Camp Woodward to provide deserving NYC youth with the opportunity of a lifetime – an all-expense paid, one-week session at the country’s premier skateboarding camp and facility.

Since the scholarship’s inception in 2007, the Harold Hunter Foundation has sent sixteen skaters to Camp Woodward, with more on the way.  To ensure it is an experience they will never forget, campers receive round-trip transportation, spending money, and they are outfitted with skateboarding gear donated by a range of generous brands.  In exchange for their scholarship, campers are required to volunteer in their local community under the guidance of Harold Hunter Foundation board members.

With summer fast approaching, the Harold Hunter Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2010 Scholarship.  To be considered, an online application must be submitted by May 7th with applicants needing to meet the following criteria:

* Must be between 7–17 years old (as of August 1, 2010)
* Must reside in New York City
* Must be unable to attend Camp Woodward without financial assistance
* Must have health insurance
