2010-2011 Program Information

To participate in the Earn Your Turns ski free program, fourth grade students must research some aspect of the history of skiing in New Hampshire, and summarize the information in a report of their or their teacher's choosing. For instance, students could write an essay or a story, draw a picture, build a model or interview a grandparent or friend who skied in the time of rope tows and wooden skis. Once the project is complete, students submit it to their fourth grade teacher. The teacher reviews each project and, if it is satisfactory, submits the student's name to Ski NH. Ski NH then sends the qualified fourth grade student his or her Earn Your Turns passbook.
