Far West Nordic Academic Team


Calling all Far West Nordic Juniors!

Far West Nordic is pleased to announce that selections are now open for the 2013-2014 Far West Nordic Academic Team. Starting in 2012, Far West Nordic began recognizing high school students in Far West Nordic who have been high achieving not only on the snow, but also in the classroom. We know all of you Far West Nordic juniors spend so many hours training, but we want to be sure you are recognized for your academic achievements as well.

The members of the Far West Nordic Academic Team will be posted on the website throughout the year and will be recognized at the Far West Nordic Annual Auction/Raffle. It will be another honor and award to include in your long list of accomplishments!

To be named to the academic team, you must be a high school student who is a current Far West Nordic Member and you must have achieved a GPA of 3.5 in the Spring of 2013. (Current freshman will use their 8th grade transcript/report card). To apply, please complete the attached application and email it to along with your Spring 2013 report card or transcript no later than October 11, 2013.  Applications can also be mailed to FWNSEA at P.O. Box 10046, Truckee, CA 96162 if postmarked by October 4, 2013. We cannot acknowledge applications received after that date due to the time needed to print certificates.  The team will be announced at the Auction/Raffle on October 26, 2013 and posted to the Far West Nordic website. Keep up the good work in your training and in the classroom. We are so proud of all of you!
