Scholarships Are Available For First Time Skiers In The 2018 Kortelopet


We want you all to know WINN (Wisconsin Nordic Network) is again offering Scholarships which cover the entrance fee into the Kortelopet (or Birkie if 18 y/o and new to the event) in February 2018. Please send in all info about each applicant so we can send you a discount code for each. Scholarships are only available to first time participants in the event.

Send the following info to and

  • First name of skier
  • Last name of skier
  • Age on race day
  • Team in WNSL the skier skis with
  • School the skier attends
  • Coach phone number
  • Coach email
  • Grade in school
  • Event the skier will do (Birkie or Korte)
  • Did this skier have a Scholarship into 2017 Event – Yes or No

If you could get this info into a spreadsheet with all your scholarship recipients listed and send it to myself and Phil Johnsrud that would be very helpful. If you only have one or 2 nominees then it is fine to have it keyed into an email – whatever is easiest for you is fine.

Please be sure to let us know if any of your recipients needs to cancel before the race so we can remove them from the list of skiers WINN pays for.

Thanks for participating in the WINN Youth Kortelopet Scholarship Program!

We are always looking for donors to support this program – Last year the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation gave us a significant grant – which helps a lot – but the main support for the program comes from individual donors – please encourage all potential donors to send money – $60 puts a kid on scholarship. Or send me contact info for potential donors and I can reach out to them.

Mail donations to:
2907 Farm View Court
Waukesha WI 53188
