Ninety-Nines Make the Final Fifteen in Lightspeed Grant Competition
Ninety-Nines, Inc., Oklahoma City, OK (April 11, 2013). On April 11, 2013 at the annual Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Florida, Lightspeed Aviation Foundation announced that The Ninety-Nines have been chosen as a finalist in the annual Lightspeed Aviation Foundation Pilot Choice Awards. Selected from a field of hundreds of nominees, the 99s are one of 15 aviation charities to compete for grants up to $10,000 that Lightspeed will award to the aviation nonprofits receiving the highest Internet vote tally in an annual grant competition.
In previous years the Ninety-Nines have used Lightspeed Foundation grant money to increase outreach programs and expand our participation in aviation events, support our scholarship programs and expand the 99s’ participation in the EAA Women Soar Program at Oshkosh. We have also been able to increase the number of flight training scholarship awards given to Women Soar participants.
Through our scholarship and education programs we are committed to working with other aviation organizations to advance aviation and the growth of the pilot community. With votes and support from aviation enthusiasts, the aviation community, our members, friends and family, the 99s can win the 2013 grant competition and use the Lightspeed grant to establish and market a new solo scholarship. It will provide young women between the ages of 16 and 20 with the funding needed to support their flight training through their first solo.
Upon learning that the 99s were a finalist in the Lightspeed grant competition, 99s President Martha Phillips said, “We are grateful to Lightspeed for inspiring us to increase our outreach and visibility in the aviation community and beyond. We will use the grant competition to talk to aviation enthusiasts about aviation and the 99s while soliciting their votes.”
