GREAT FALLS — Since 2007, Alexander Blewitt III, a trial lawyer from the personal injury law firm of Hoyt & Blewett PLLC and Montana high school wrestling supporter, has offered a trio of $1,000 scholarships to high school wrestling athletes in the Treasure State.
For the 13th consecutive year, one scholarship will be given in each of the classifications in Montana high school wrestling — Class AA, Class A and the combined Class B-C.
Blewitt will award one wrestler in each classification “who has displayed the best combined qualities of wrestling and academic achievement.” Only seniors are eligible for the scholarships, but they are not required to win state championships at the state wrestling tournament in Billings in February, though strong academic achievement is a requirement.
Athletes must also attend a college within the United States, where the $1,000 scholarship can be applied toward the cost of tuition.
Blewitt is a former wrestler who continues to support the sport, as do his sons Anders and Drew, who were also former high school wrestlers.
Applications for the Blewitt wrestling scholarship must be completed by Sunday, March 31. They can be submitted by clicking here.
