Off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation not only requires access to OHV trails, areas and systems, but also people to manage and provide for the use. As a result, NOHVCC wants to make a small investment in the future by offering a $1,000 scholarship to an individual pursuing a career in the outdoors. The ideal candidate will follow a course of study that is intended to lead to a career in recreation or land management or other related fields and will have a passion for OHV recreation.
NOHVCC Program Director, Marc Hildesheim said of the new scholarship, “There seems to be a void in helping college students who want to pursue a career in recreation management, so NOHVCC is stepping in to let our future managers know we value their efforts get into this field. We also encourage other OHV organizations, clubs and associations to offer scholarships as well. Safe and sustainable OHV recreation demands a certain skillset and we can all do more to ensure that skillset is instilled in students now – so that we can meet NOHVCC’s mission of “creating a positive future for OHV recreation.”
