In June the Black Fly Challenge awarded the inaugural Black Fly Scholarships to seniors from Indian Lake School and Town of Webb School (which is where Inlet kids attend high school after graduating from Inlet’s K-6, four-room schoolhouse!)
In addition, Indian Lake School awarded the first-ever Black Fly Award to one student based on the outstanding quality of their work. This annual award is provided to Indian Lake School as thanks for the use of the school every other year.
In keeping with the part of the BFC Mission to reinvest in our communities the Black Fly Challenge race committee is proud to provide these annual scholarships and awards.
The Black Fly 2018 Scholarship winners were Emily Greene, of Old Forge, and Sydney Benton, of Indian Lake. Each received a $500.00 check.
The Indian Lake School Black Fly 2018 Award winner was Kristina Oliver. She received a $300.00 store credit that can be used at Pedals & Petals Bike Shop or McCauley Mountain Ski Shop.
In addition to these annual scholarships and awards Black Fly Challenge will announce later this year, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the recipients of our annual community reinvestment donations.
You can support these efforts by purchasing something from the variety of trademark BFC merchandise the BFC Store. And while you’re there don’t forget to check out the BFC-edition Waheela S Comp Raffle Bike! The winner of this all-new $2,000.00 adventure bike will be drawn October 6, 2018 at the Pedals & Petals Breast Cancer Awareness Ride.
