1997 Tulip Time Scholarship Games.

This year's Tulip Time Scholarship Games are "shaping up" to be the best festival of fitness and fun that we've ever sponsored! And there are more ways than ever to win valuable scholarships to the many fine colleges and universities participating in the Games.

Scholarship Fitness Events

Kids can compete in footraces (with different age divisions and distances), a predicted time race, and accuracy contests in basketball, tennis, golf, and soccer. There will even be a moms' race and a dads' race for kids' scholarships--so remind parents to start training! Kids can also participate in the President's Challenge Physical Fitness Program. For more information contact:
