June 8, 2014 - Port Jervis, NY- The 15th annual Port Jervis Soap Box Derby crowned four champs earlier today. Jaelyn Csencsits (stock) Alexa Gessner (superkids) Hannah Bisland (masters) and Ryan Costello (superstock) will all go on to represent Port Jervis in the All-American Soap Box Derby in Akron, Ohio in late July.
It was a perfectly sunny day as hundreds of spectators lined the streets to watch 143 Drivers compete in the largest Soap Box Derby in the world for a chance to win the coveted week-long trip to Akron, Ohio to race with the world's elite.
This year's derby was sponsored by several local businesses and organizations such as Kolmar, Shoprite and the Neversink Media Group of 107.7, 96.7 and 106.9 Radio. "Without the support of this community, this event could never happen," said Wayne Addy, Director of the Derby. "It is absolutely amazing how many people come together to make this all happen."
Three Scholarships were also awarded on derby day. The Elizabeth Ashley "Boo" Bisland Memorial Scholarship Fund financed three $1000 awards to past drivers who are graduating this year and are going on to post-secondary education. Scholarships were awarded to Kendra Addy, Aaron Aumick and Hannah Bisland. Hannah also went on to win in the Masters Division. It was surely her lucky day.
