Duane Snaza Memorial Scholarship
The Duane Snaza Memorial Scholarship was created by Lake Region Electric Association’s Board of Directors to honor a former employee. Duane Snaza worked at LREA for three summers. Duane’s parents, Wayne and Jackie Snaza, are member-owners who farm north of Webster.
This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one student who is the dependent child, including adopted or stepchild, of member-owners of Lake Region Electric Association. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen and must be a student who is enrolled, or is planning to enroll, in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited, two-year or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school.
This scholarship is awarded based on the following criteria: participation in school and community activities, grade-point average, work experience, SAT/ACT scores, statement by student explaining his/her educational and career goals, a written recommendation by a third party and presentation of the application.
Lake Region will be responsible to select one recipient to be awarded a scholarship in the member-cooperative consumer category. The final recipient's completed application will then be forwarded to Basin Electric Power Cooperative by Lake Region.

If the recipient is not enrolled as a full-time student during the fall semester after receiving the scholarship they will forfeit the monetary award. The scholarships are for one year only.
Except for the requirements outlined, no obligations will be imposed upon the student as a scholarship winner. Other than payment of the scholarship, no obligations or liability are assumed by Basin Electric, it's subsidiaries or Lake Region Electric.
