Golf for Schools
The Birmingham Airport Authority focuses on the future by promoting airport community students’ interest in aviation, math, and science. One way the Birmingham Airport Authority supports this initiative is through the annual Golf for Schools tournament.
Golf for Schools tournaments and the generosity of its sponsors have made its impact in the community for hundreds of students year after year. Proceeds from the early years funded programs such as Newspapers in Education to airport area Birmingham City Schools and field trips the Southern Museum of Flight and McWane Science Center. The program has since expanded to providing scholarships for students to attend Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Through the Aviation Challenge poster and essay contest, the Birmingham Airport Authority selects students to attend the annual summer camp.
Each year, support and commitment to the tournament has grown and because of this support, we are able to extend our Aviation Challenge poster and essay contest from three partner schools to the entire Birmingham City Schools system. We have also been able to increase the number of students selected over the past three years.
We are grateful for the generosity of our sponsors for making the Birmingham Airport Authority’s Fourteenth Annual Golf for Schools tournament a success. With your loyalty and commitment, we can continue to provide enduring enthusiasm for learning in the hearts of airport area students.
