The Green Bay Area USBC provides scholarships every year to recognize outstanding young bowlers in our association. The scholarships are named after the following individuals, all of whom have had a tremendous impact on youth bowling: Al Salmon, Rose & Maurice Lawyer, and Leo Delvoye.
This year the Youth Committee has awarded two $1,000 scholarships.
This year’s scholarship winners are:
Leo Delvoye Memorial Scholarship
