SNP, proud National Sponsor of the ESA and the ESA All-Star Team, announces the winners of the 2010 Student Surfer Award for deserving student surfer athletes.
Surfers submitted an application, transcripts, and a 250 word essay addressing the applicant's surfing ability, financial need, current sponsorships, and community service involvement. Each award consists of a free ESA membership or renewal, a $270 entry fee grant to be applied toward contest fees, and a free SNP Product Kit. Winners were announced at the ESA/TGSA Scholastic Surfing Championships, March 26-28, 2010 in New Smyrna Beach, FL by Tom Warnke, SNP Sales and Marketing Director.
"SNP has been a great supporter of ESA and the All-Star Team since they started business last year and I look forward to their continued support in 2010. When this Surfing Award was presented to me, I thought this is one of the most innovative community outreach programs I've seen, and an example of the way Andy, Howard, and Tom do business! With the addition of Darrick Doerner and Dean Randazzo, SNP is a welcome addition to the surfing community," Debbie Hodges (ESA Executive Director).
