After a month of video submissions, 4FRNT Skis has finished evaluating the pool of applications for its “Shreddership” contest and has announced the four finalists. The Shreddership contest, which aims to reward the college student who best exemplifies the ski/study balance, offers the winner a full 4FRNT product sponsorship for the 2010-2011 ski season.
Thirty-five students submitted their Shreddership applications, which included both an academic questionnaire and a “sponsor me” video portion. Both components were weighted equally in the scoring.
According to 4FRNT, three of the 35 applicants actually had to pull out of the competition after signing with other ski companies, thus demonstrating the high caliber of skiing that dominated the contest.
The four finalists now move on to be judged by a panel of celebrity jurors. Check back for the winning announcement as its released.
