This season we challenged our athletes to put their creative skills to work and create a video that explains what it means to them to be a higher level human. Needless to say, we were very excited to see what our talented athletes came up with.
Not only did we want our community to know that we have some amazingly talented athletes, but we also wanted our athletes to recognize and become more aware of what they are learning on the team.
There are so many benefits to pursuing excellence in ski racing that often times, we get caught up in the details. Asking our athletes to explain what exactly they get out of being on a tight-knit, family-like team helped them to take a step back, and see the big picture. We hope these lessons stand out and continue to expand and grow as our team expands and grows in other ways as well.
We had a third-party judge the videos with the winner receiving a $1000 SMSEF scholarship and the two runner-ups receiving a $250 scholarship. Here are the winning videos:
