We are proud to say that for our third year of the ISLA’s Junior Guard scholarship, we were blown away with the number of applicants we had! ISLA would like to thank everyone who applied and for sharing your inspiring videos with us. Our only regret is that we weren’t able to give every applicant a full junior lifeguard scholarship.
The winner of the 2014 scholarship is Zeia Rose, a nine year old girl from Mammoth Lakes, California. Zeia would like to follow in her father’s, grand father’s and uncle’s footsteps by one day becoming a lifeguard. Zeia is also passionate about the ocean and helping others and believes that becoming a Jr. Guard is the first step.
We are excited and can’t wait to check in on Zeia throughout the summer season. We’ll be compiling a photo album series that highlights her junior lifeguard experience.
Although a video was not required for this years applicants, Checkout Zeia’s video scholarship entry.
