MEMORIAL JUNIOR NATIONAL AWARD
Pia-Margrethe Denkewalter was a young Alaskan outdoor enthusiast and student. Pia enjoyed Nordic skiing, running, rock climbing and mountaineering, soccer, as well as travel, academia, reading and more. This award is to financially support an Alaskan cross-country skier who has qualified for the Alaskan Junior National Nordic Ski Team. Two awards to cover the majority of the Team Fee will be offered: $2,000 if the recipient is from Anchorage and $1,200 if the recipient is from Fairbanks and is not staying at the Wedgewood.
This award is not from Cross Country Alaska, but from the family of Pia-Margrethe. The award committee will notify recipients of the awards in early March.
