From Senior Event Services Coordinator Nicole McMahon:
Do you live in North Carolina? Are you a freshman, sophomore, or junior in high school and want to learn more about becoming an active citizen and the National Rifle Association? Do you have at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale? Then apply to the 2010 North Carolina Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.)! The deadline to apply is Wednesday, August 25.
The North Carolina Y.E.S. program will take place Friday, September 10 – Sunday, September 12. During the summit, students will be introduced to the legislative and political bodies in their state, become educated about the rich history of North Carolina, tour museums and historical sites in the area, as well learn public speaking and debating skills.
At the conclusion of North Carolina Y.E.S., three students will be awarded college scholarships, and the top winner will be selected to attend the 2011 National Y.E.S. program in Washington, D.C. from June 20 – 26.
