CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada is pleased to announce the 2011 Kenneth R. Stiles – Seaman Hotchkiss Hockey Foundation (formerly Flames Project 75) Officiating Scholarship winners. These annual scholarship awards provide financial assistance to officials in the Hockey Canada Officiating Program for post-secondary education at Canadian colleges and universities.

The Kenneth R. Stiles Scholarships are awarded annually to young men and women who participate in Hockey Canada’s officiating programs. The goal of the scholarship program is to provide funding to help offset the cost of post-secondary education for Canada’s top young officials, supporting their efforts to complete their university and college goals, become better officials, and to reward their efforts for mentoring younger officials in the game.

In 2011, five promising officials each receive $2,000 in scholarship awards, while one official will receive a $1,000 scholarship through this program. The Kenneth R. Stiles Scholarship selection committee awards the scholarships on the basis of academic achievement, officiating excellence and community involvement.

2011 Kenneth R. Stiles – Seaman Hotchkiss Hockey Foundation Scholarship winners:

Hockey Alberta – Reid Anderson, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Polytechnic
Hockey Nova Scotia – Donnelly Archibald, St. Francis Xavier University
Ottawa District Hockey Association - David Lauer, University of Ottawa
Ontario Hockey Federation – Jacob Morassut, University of Windsor
Hockey Québec – Raphaelle Morin-Blais, Université de Sherbrooke
Ontario Hockey Federation – Ben Wilson, Conestoga College

The Kenneth R. Stiles Officiating Scholarship Awards, first announced in 2007 by the Calgary Flames founding ownership group, were named for the late Ken Stiles, a former president of Flames Project 75. Over the past 30 years, Flames Project 75, an oil and gas legacy from the Flames ownership group, has contributed more than $5,500,000 to minor hockey development initiatives in Canada as well as other charities in Alberta. In 2009, Project 75 became officially known as the Seaman Hotchkiss Foundation as it continues to support grassroots initiative across Canada.

Officials eligible for the Kenneth R. Stiles Scholarships must be Canadian citizens, registered and active Hockey Canada officials, members in good standing with their home branch and registered or applying for full-time post-secondary studies. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, officiating achievement and community involvement. Application packages are distributed annually in January and are available through the Hockey Canada manager of officiating, Todd Anderson, by emailing  tanderson@hockeycanada.ca.
