The submission period for NK’s annual grant program is coming to a close this week, with applications being accepted through Saturday, April 1, 2017.
NK’s annual grant program is one of the ways we show our appreciation for the athletes and programs we love. Each year we support 10 athletes and 10 programs with a donation of NK equipment. This year, NK will give all ten athletes selected a SpeedCoach GPS 2
, and the ten programs will receive $500 to put towards NK equipment of their choice.
Athlete entries will be evaluated based on training plan, barriers to making a purchase, personal goals and how a SpeedCoach GPS 2 will help achieve those goals.
Program entries will be evaluated by NK based on the same criteria as the athlete entries and narrowed down to 20 finalists. These finalists will be listed on NK’s Facebook page, giving them the opportunity to gather support for their cause through friends, family and social media networks. The five finalists with the most “likes” will automatically receive program grants, and five more will receive grants based on need and the strength of their application. Voting will open the week following the application deadline, and will run for two weeks.
The last day to submit applications is Saturday, April 1, 2017. Athlete Grant winners and Program Grant finalists will be contacted the following week. Winners will be announced to the public after voting is closed on Facebook.
