In 2001, the Southern California Interclub Association of Figure Skating Clubs initiated a Memorial Grant Program in memory of Betty Sonnhalter, an official and member of the local skating community for many years. This Grant was created to honor her many years of dedication to young ice skaters.
Each year two skaters are selected by an Interclub committee from applications submitted by Interclub Member Club skaters. One grant is for Novice skaters and above, and one is for Intermediate through Pre-Preliminary skaters. The recipients receive an engraved plaque and a $500 check at the Southern California Interclub Championships competition each June.
Attached is the application for the Sonnhalter grant. The application requires: (1) a signature from a Club Official, (2) that each applicant completes the forms on his or her own, (3) the information provided is accurate, and (4) an official and sealed copy of school grades for the current and past year. Applications that are incomplete will not be considered. Applications that are not completed by the applying skater will not be considered.
Applications must be received or postmarked by 27 May 2016 for the 2016 award.
