One male and one female high school Cross Country and/or Track & Field student-athlete will have a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship!
We see a scholar-athlete as someone who is not only physically capable of reaching for their goals, but mentally willing to put in the work. We have created this program to honor their efforts and help them fulfill their dreams.
I am very excited to be a part of the Zensah-KG Scholarship Program. Zensah recognizes the importance of high school sports and what a powerful impact participation can have on students’ lives.
