Listen up people!! We just received word from our Friends in Alaska. It appears that they're gearing up for the annual Youth Education Summit in the state capital of Juneau ... here's more:
The National Rifle Association is currently accepting applications from qualified high school freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors to participate in the 2012 Alaska Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.) Wednesday, March 21 – Sunday, March 25.
Outstanding students from across Alaska are chosen each year to travel to the state’s capital, where they participate in the five-day educational program. Alaska Y.E.S. is a chance of a lifetime to gain a hands-on education of the history of Alaska and the democratic process.
One student will have the opportunity to attend the National Y.E.S. program in Washington, DC, June 25 - July 1. At National Y.E.S., students have the opportunity to compete for up to $10,000 in college scholarships, awarded to those who excel during the week’s activities and compete for a $20,000 scholarship after they attend Y.E.S.
Entry into the Alaska Y.E.S. program requires submission of a completed application form, essay on the Second Amendment, high school transcript and three recommendations. Interested students should have their application post-marked no later than January 6, 2012.
For more information, please contact the Alaska Y.E.S. organizers Camille Rodgers or Jennifer Strickland at YES@ohfak.org.
