John and Karen Bingham Scholarship

Deadline: TBA

This scholarship was established in 2011, by the Board of Central Wisconsin BMX Club, Inc. in honor and appreciation for John and Karen's many years of service and dedication. They have supported the youth of our community through their careers in the field of education and in their involvement with Central Wisconsin BMX - an organization that promotes and encourages the sport of BMX and what it represents.

BMX (bicycle motocross) offers discipline to focus energy, self-esteem to build confidence, physical fitness to develop strong minds and bodies, as well as offering family unity, entertainment, community involvement and awareness.

John and Karen were introduced to BMX racing in 1998 when their son, Casey, got involved. The family atmosphere and great people associated with BMX racing drew John and Karen to get more active in the organization. John served as president and Karen as secretary/treasurer for 11 years.

Highlights of those years were the relocation of the track facility, growth in membership, hosting seven State Championship Finals, and the first national BMX event held locally in 2010.

With the establishment of this scholarship, Central Wisconsin BMX believes the generous time and talents that John and Karen have shared with so many will be honored by their financial opportunity given in their name. Students will be able to continue to pursue their dreams through higher education for many years to come.

The Bob Warnicke Scholarship

The Warnicke Memorial Scholarship Fund was successfully launched with one goal in mind – to meet the costs of undergraduate, trade school, or other educational avenues students wish to pursue. In 2023, $60,000 in Bob Warnicke scholarships have been awarded to deserving students and their families. 


Funds are raised through a series of memorial races, the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and private donors. Since 2013, USA BMX has proudly awarded more than $557,000 to hand-picked recipients.

Bob Warnicke’s leadership and selfless efforts played an integral role in the surging growth of BMX; including the sport’s exposure to millions of viewers through ESPN’s airing of the “Road to Glory Series.” Warnicke’s legacy lives on by contributing to the futures of commendable USA BMX and BMX Canada members. This year, 51 awards ranging from $500 – $3,000 were given to recipients across 30 states and three Canadian provinces.
