Two winners have been chosen as recipients of the 2014 Justin Winker Scholarship. His friends and family created the scholarship in memory of Justin.
Participants were asked to write a 500-word essay on how youth hockey helped prepare them for college. An award of $500.00 was handed to each of the winners by association president Keith Vowels at the July board meeting.
The recipients, pictured with Keith, are Jacob Lange (University of North Dakota) and Megan Peterson (College of St. Scholastica)
We had a great turnout for the Fridley parade! Thank you to everyone who participated!

D3 wants everyone to know they are making a strong effort to reduce head contact (and hopefully the prevalence of concussions).
Hockey is not an end. It is a means to an end. There is nothing inherently good about scoring, forechecking, backchecking, or winning. It is only good if it promotes education and learning. Those that come away with a higher work ethic, honesty, and integrity are the true winners. Hockey does not build character, rather it reveals it. It's these values that do more than anything else we develop that will be the true measure of how successful the NMYHA is.
