We are proud to announce that Skateistan has been awarded TransWorld Skateboarding Magazine's 17th annual Eric Stricker Memorial Award! This award was created in memory of former TransWorld editor Eric Stricker, and it sets out to honor individuals in the skateboarding industry that have shown a continued dedication to the positive growth, longevity, and love of skateboarding. It was presented by Tony Hawk.
Skateistan recently celebrated its 5th anniversary at the Kabul skatepark with 550 students, staff, alumni, families, officials, community members and supporters. The event was entirely organized and run by Skateistan youth leaders, including some who were our very first students in 2009. Click the image to see more photos!
