Since 2007 the FIS SnowKidz program has focused on bringing a new generation of youth to snow sports. Today SnowKidz has over 500 organizers in 45 countries. The FIS SnowKidz awards seek to highlight the top programs in the world.

This year Sweden’s Everyone on Snow! Program was the clear winner receiving a record setting 321 points. There was a tie for second place between Finland’s Snow Moves! and Greece’s Seek a Snowflake programs both receiving 293 points. CXC’s Nordic Rocks program was a close fourth receiving 290 points.

Contestants were evaluated on five first priority criteria and two secondary criteria. First priority criteria were worth twice the points of second priority criteria. First priority criteria included successful initiative, high project quality, evolution of program, transferability to other National Ski Associations and long-term enthusiasm. Second priority criteria included commercial viability and promotional value.

We’re honored to be considered among the top programs in the world. We started our Nodric Rocks program in 2014 and we currently partner with over 200 schools and have over 20,000 participants.

We look forward to continuing to improve and expand our program in the months and years to come!
