Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- The NRA Foundation has awarded $15,000 in scholarships to attendees of last summer’s 2014 Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.) through the Y.E.S. Grand Scholarship program.

At the conclusion of Y.E.S., a seven-day educational experience in Washington, DC, for high school students, participants have the opportunity to compete in the Y.E.S. Grand Scholarship for financial aid paid directly to the accredited college or technical school of their choice. Over a period of nine months, students competing for the scholarship must introduce NRA programs into their communities and create a portfolio documenting the experience.

Recipients of the 2014 Y.E.S. Grand Scholarship performed a number of activities to promote firearm safety and raise money for shooting sports programs, including hosting Eddie Eagle GunSafe classes at local elementary schools and children’s programs, joining a Friends of NRA committee, and establishing a 4-H shooting club.

“The Youth Education Summit has awarded more than $460,000 in college scholarships over its 20-year history,” said Executive Director of NRA General Operations Kyle Weaver. “We are proud to assist the next generation of competitive shooters, hunters, and firearms enthusiasts pursue their dreams through higher education.”
