Applications being accepted NOW!
Every year our EAA chapter sponsors a child to attend a week at the Air Academy Camp in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. We have fund raisers throughout the year and fly Young Eagles to raise money to send one or two kids to camp.
The contest is open to all students ages 12-18. The fast-paced Air Academy program provides opportunities in hands-on workshops and computer laboratories. Participants explore nearly every facet of flight, from balsa gliders to the large collection of aircraft at EAA's world class AirVenture Museum located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The contest will run from January 31, 2013 and conclude March 14, 2013. The winner(s) will be contacted by March 21, 2013. All applicants will need to complete the EAA Air Academy Application, as well as two letters of recommendation and a brief essay. Details and further instructions are in the applications below. Please download the following 3 documents, fill out, and return to us PRIOR to March 14th, 2013. Return to Pete DeCraene (do not send anything to Oshkosh, WI). If you have any questions, please contact Pete DeCraene at 815-210-5840.
