Each year, ALCA organizes a golf tourney honoring Sky Blu Underwood in which the proceeds go to the Green Industry Scholarship Fund. Sky Blu Underwood was born in Phoenix in 1974 and was raised around the landscape industry. He often worked for his father during the summers at AAA Landscape. His roots are deeply entwined with the agricultural industry. Unfortunately, Sky did not live long enough to fulfill his dreams. This endowment has been established to help other young people build theirs. Perhaps applicants can use their education to beautify the world with trees, flowers, and other green things...and carry on one of Sky's dreams.
ALCA also holds a silent auction event during the Excellence in Landscaping program in which the proceeds go to the Green Industry Scholarship Programs.
To apply for a scholarship, an application must be completed and submitted to the ALCA office by May 31st for the following academic year.
