The Little Kinger Fund was established for the purpose of collecting and distributing funds to provide opportunities for girls to participate in athletics. The founder is Piqua native, Kristin King, who played on the US Women’s Olympic Hockey team in the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy where she helped her team earn the bronze medal. Hockey has enriched Kristin’s life in many ways. It has opened doors and allowed her to go places and do things that she never dreamed. It is her heart’s desire to give something back to the game, and give back to her community, by helping to provide some of those same opportunities for others. Kristin excelled to the highest level in women’s hockey but she was also a multiple sport athlete in her high school and college years and did well academically.

The Little Kinger Fund Athletic Scholarship of $1,000 will be provided annually to a Miami Valley female high school senior who will be participating in intercollegiate athletics at a four-year institution. Selections will be based on athletic accomplishments, academic success and personal character. For this scholarship applicants will need to fill out the application form, provide two letters of recommendation, complete a personal statement, send a confirmation letter from their college/university athletic department and be willing to send follow up information if selected to receive the scholarship.

The application deadline is April 23, 2021. Completed applications should be mailed to The Piqua Community Foundation, Attn: Scholarships, P.O. Box 226, Piqua, OH 45356 or hand delivered to The Foundation office at 209 W. Ash Street, Piqua.
