Awards girls sought for 2015 Championships
VAIL —The Ceremonies Committee for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships is currently seeking local applicants to serve as awards girls for both the post-race flower presentation and the nightly official medal presentations during the two weeks of the World Championships.
Applicants must be between 16-19 years of age; be available to serve as an awards girl for the Birds of Prey World Cup, Dec. 5-7, and have a flexible schedule and availability during the Championships.
“Becoming an awards girl is a terrific way to experience the World Championships,” said Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation and president of the 2015 World Championships Organizing Committee. “Not only will you play an integral role in an official component of the championships each day, but you’ll be up close with some of the greatest athletes in the world.”
Applicants are requested to submit a current photo, along with a short statement of why they are interested in becoming an awards girl. Photos and statement should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Aug. 22.
Successful applicants will be invited to an in-person audition in September.
