Announcing Nancy Duree Natural Resource Scholarship

March 19th, 2010 in Archived Salmon Fest News

The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival announced that applications for the Nancy Duree Natural Resource Scholarship are now being accepted. The annual $1,500 scholarship is dedicated in memory of Nancy Duree who was an active partner in the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival since its inception, and a champion of natural resource education for both children and adults.

The scholarship will be awarded to a North Central Washington 2010 graduating high school senior pursuing a college education in a natural resource field (biology, forestry, botany, fisheries, geology, ecology, environmental education etc.)

Applicants must attend a high school in one of the following counties to compete for the scholarship: Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittitas, Okanogan or Yakima. The successful candidate will be selected based upon their academic record, community commitment, essay, references and financial need.

Applications are due April 15, 2010 and may be downloaded from the internet at www.salmonfest.org.

The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is dedicated to providing high quality natural resource education, promoting outdoor recreation, and sharing the cultural significance of the salmon to the people of the Northwest. The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery host the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival and invite you to join us for this year’s 20th celebration September 16-19, 2010.
