We would like to congratulate our 2016 Melvin Rinehart Memorial Scholarship Winners!
The Iowa Snowdrifter’s scholarship program was started in honor of Melvin Rinehart who was a dedicated club and board member for many years. Each year the Iowa Snowdrifters awards scholarships to applicants who are a member or son or daughter of a member of an Iowa snowmobile club. They must submit academic and community activities that they were a part of and an essay of why snowmobiling is important to them. Please help us to congratulate our 2016 recipients!
