Eight students applied for the scholarship this year. The three recipients were chosen based on the essays they submitted, in which they answered why they believe they are appropriate recipients. Campbell said there were roughly 10 applicants this year, and a group graded the submissions, average the scores, and chose the top three selections.
While the race's future is in question, the scholarship will continue by other means of funding, Campbell said. Previously, sponsor contributions helped fund it.
Campbell also designed a larger plaque -- one that lists every recipient of the scholarship since its inception in 2008 -- for St. Albans High School and Nick's family.
Twelve students received scholarships in amounts of either $500 or $1,000 over the course of the race's five years.
Previous recipients include Cody Keeney (2009), Andrew Bailey (2010), Anthony Caldwell (2010), Evan Dalton (2010), Adam Adkins (2011), Matthew Searls (2011), Tyler Allen (2012), Haelei Cavender (2012) and Caitlyn Lett (2012).
The race has records of 15:30 (male) and 18:26 (female). The start and finish line is at Hudson Street beside St. Albans High School, and the course looped through residential areas of St. Albans.
