All the monies you will receive to travel and train.
Thank you, I was really excited :)
This means a lot to me, not just from the financial aid, but it also has given the confidence that I needed to know that I was have been heading down the right path, by making orienteering my primary sport and making speed skating mroe of a hobby/cross training.
Sorry Guy ;P
Yesterday I won the Iain Wilson Character Through Competition Award, which means that I will receive a $1000 grant to help pay for travel expenses as I go to high level competitions! It will go towards helping me pay for my trip to Switzerland this summer :)

Wow! Congrats indeed! Well deserved!
Though I didn't know the competition was open to non-US orienteers...
Thanks Guy! It was for athletes who live in the US :)
CAOC, Jan Erik's home town club for many years, will also be giving $1000 to the his travel and training expenses.
Was CAOC's a match, or independent of the Wilson Award?
Thanks Charlie I'm looking forward to an amazing year of orienteering. I hope to thank everyone in the CAOC soon :)
Both of these grants help me so much, I can't express my gratitude enough!
