The Compass - - PUZZLERS -

Recre­ation New­found­land and Labrador has re­leased in­for­ma­tion on the 2013 Stu­dent Schol­ar­ship pro­gram de­signed for recre­ation stu­dents.

The schol­ar­ships were de­vel­oped with the as­sis­tance of recre­ational lead­ers in the prov­ince, and will be given to two ap­pli­cants.

“Th­ese schol­ar­ships have been put into place to as­sist with the long term so­lu­tion for our com­mu­ni­ties’ recre­ation needs,” said Re­cre­tion NL Pres­i­dent Dawn Sharpe.

Recre­ation NL is look­ing for stu­dents who dis­play in­no­va­tion, com­mit­ment and lead­er­ship in their aca­demic work, and ex­hibit sim­i­lar traits as com­mu­nity recre­ation vol­un­teers.

“We are look­ing for­ward to re­view­ing all of the ap­pli­ca­tions for the schol­ar­ships and learn­ing about our fu­ture recre­ation lead­ers’ ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ences,” said Rob But­ton, recre­ation prac­ti­tion­ers and fa­cil­i­ties rep­re­sen­ta­tive. The dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is Oct. 25. “Recre­ation lead­ers are vi­tal to our com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment, es­pe­cially with the grow­ing need for phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, in­clu­sion and qual­ity of life,” said Sharpe.
