Alberta E. Crowe, a seven-term president of the Women’s International Bowling Congress, was recognized by her peers not only for great service but great leadership and depth of character. Her dedicated efforts brought improvements in member services, competition opportunities and leadership training for women.
Under Crowe’s direction, the Star of Tomorrow annual honor for young women bowlers was launched in 1961. When the original sponsor withdrew support, Crowe personally took on responsibility for expenses related to the recognition, which became known as the Alberta E. Crowe Star of Tomorrow award. WIBC assumed sponsorship for the award upon Crowe’s retirement in 1981 and added a scholarship component in 1985.
The Alberta E. Crowe Star of Tomorrow Award annually recognizes star qualities in a female USBC Youth member who competes in the sport of bowling. Star qualities include distinguished certified bowling performances on the local, state and national level, academic achievement and extra-curricular activities. The award winner will receive a $6,000 scholarship. This scholarship will be formally presented at the annual USBC Convention. USBC will pay travel and hotel expenses for the winner and her parents/guardians to attend the award ceremony.
