USA BMX Announces 2017 Bob Warnicke Scholarship Winners

Gilbert, Arizona – May 9, 2017 – USA BMX announces that $53,500 in Bob Warnicke Scholarships for 2017 has been awarded to deserving students and their families. Funds are raised annually though the Warnicke Scholarship Race.  This series of races was created to help fund The Bob Warnicke Memorial Scholarship Fund which assists students and their families in meeting the costs of undergraduate college education, trade school and other education avenues they would like to pursue. USA BMX/BMX Canada members who have a current USA BMX/BMX Canada membership or Track Operators/Officials who participate in BMX racing events sanctioned by USA BMX/BMX Canada are eligible to apply.  Since 2013, more than $250,000 has been awarded.

On November 16, 1994, Bob passed away at the young age of 48 years old.  Well known for his leadership role and for his many efforts in promoting the sport, Bob’s many contributions improved the sport and the image of BMX throughout the years.  He will best be remembered for his instrumental role in bringing BMX to millions of viewers through the airing of the "Road to Glory Series" on ESPN and ESPN2.  More than anything else, Bob was a person who cared deeply about the sport of BMX, and his dedication showed his commitment to the youth who benefited from his efforts. 

The Scholarship Program preserves Bob Warnicke's legacy of love by contributing to the futures of deserving USA BMX / BMX Canada members in his name.  This year 70 awards were given to recipients in 28 states and two Canadian provinces.  Thirty-three college or trade school-bound students were first-time recipients of the award.  Fourteen students were second-year recipients, 16 were third-year recipients, and this year saw seven four-year recipients of the award.  Awards ranged from $500 to $3,000.

“Each year the pool of scholarship candidates increases and the quality of applications continue to improve,” said BA Anderson, CEO of USA BMX.  “The selection process gets harder each year and we are grateful to all of our tracks that participate in the Warnicke Scholarship Race.  Through the efforts of the tracks and private donors, we are able to continue to award these deserving students.”

The USA BMX Foundation has created an endowment for the Bob Warnicke Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Each year money raised through the Warnicke Scholarship races and the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony are placed into the endowment.  Donations to the 501(c)3 are always appreciated and are utilized for the scholarship fund.  For more information on a Bob Warnicke Scholarship Race near you, visit usabmx.com.
