This scholarship was started to give members of NDCCA an added benefit to have the option to honor one of their cheerleaders using their own criteria. They may have a cheerleader that isn’t necessarily the best student, but is a great contributor to their cheer team. Each coach chosen will decide her own selection method. At the State Fall Cheer Competition, one Class A and one Class B coach will be drawn from the current NDCCA members. That coach will then be sent a certificate to award the cheerleader for her to send in for payment. Scholarship amount is $200.
