$20,000 Scholarship: Calling All Athletes …

Nov 21, 2013


The Footlocker Scholar Athletes program honors athletes for demonstrating excellence in school, on their sports team, and in their communities.  This is an award where they celebrate YOU!  Not necessarily because you scored the winning touchdown or goal, but because sports have helped you grow into a strong leader in your community.

Twenty winners of the program will each receive $20,000 in scholarship funding for college.
