Blewett Wrestling Scholarship

$1000 Scholarship to Top Student/Wrestler In All 3 Classes: AA, A & B/C

For the eleventh year in a row, Alexander (Zander) Blewett, III, a trial lawyer from Great Falls who practices in the Montana personal injury law firm of Hoyt & Blewett PLLC, will award $1000 Scholarships to the top high school student/wrestler in classes AA, A and B/C.

Zander is a great fan of wrestling. Being a trial lawyer is very similar to wrestling; you prevail by hard work. Zander has spent the majority of his adult life in front of juries handling all types of claims for injured persons in a statewide litigation practice. He and his sons, Anders and Drew, who are also lawyers, are former wrestlers and the sport has served them all very well.

The purpose of the Blewett Wrestling Scholarship is to award $1000 to the wrestler in Class AA, Class A and Class B/C who has displayed the best combined qualities of wrestling and academic achievement. The award will go to one senior high school wrestler in each class around Montana who best qualifies. You do not have to win the state championship to qualify for this scholarship; if you do win, you must still exhibit strong academic achievement. The winner of each class must attend a college somewhere in the United States and a check in the amount of $1000 will be sent to that college to help defray the cost of tuition.
