During this year’s Bob and Barbara White Invitational we will once again be honoring a student with the Steve Hearring Leadership Award. The Steve Hearring Award is given to a local martial arts student who best embodies the spirit of Steve Hearring – leadership, humility, integrity, and class.

In the past we’ve had a number of studios participate by nominating their students and hope that trend continues for the 2019 award. In order to honor this fine man, and the best and brightest of our young martial artists, we are proudly accepting nominations for the Steve Hearring Award.

Please fill out the online nomination form. All nominations MUST be completed and returned by March 10, 2019. Late entries will not be accepted. Only one nomination per studio please.

Each nomination will reviewed by a panel of independent voters, who will be responsible for selecting the Steve Hearring Award nominee that will be presented at the Bob and Barbara White Invitational.

Thank you so much for keeping the Memory of Steve Hearring alive and by nominating your student for this Leadership Award.

If you have any questions, please contact me at andree@kenpowomen.com.

Best Regards,
Andree Scanlon
