10 Years of the IL State Scholarship Tour

The Illinois State Scholarship Tour marked it's 10th season with the close of the 2014-2015 season. This youth tour first began in 2005, with just over 50 members during it's inaugural season. That number has now grown to over 300! Since the 2005-2006 season, the Illinois State Scholarship Tour has awarded $366,999.62 in scholarship money to bowlers. These tournament stops have also been some of the nation's top Junior Gold qualifying events, sending over 400 bowlers to the national championships over its 10 year history.

Most recently, tournament director, Patti Mauerman, was featured in an article written by Chad Murphy in Youth Bowling Today, highlighting the success and importance of these events. "We are a big bowling family, and we want to do everything we can to keep kids bowling." Patti and the Illinois State Scholarship Tour will continue it's tradition August 2nd, with the start of the 2015-2016 season at Highland Park Bowl in Moline, IL. All bowlers, age 23 years or younger as of August 1st, are welcomed. For more information on the upcoming season, please visit the 2015-2016 IL State Scholarship Tour link on the left hand side.
