The winners of this year's Youth Education Summit Grand Scholarship have been announced.
$20,000 in college scholarships have been spread among six winners and will be paid directly to the accredited college or technical school of the student’s choice.
Once the National Y.E.S., a seven-day, expense paid educational experience in Washington, D.C. for rising high school juniors and seniors, ends the Grand Scholarship begins. Students have nine months to introduce NRA programs to their communities and document the process in a portfolio.
The NRA saw a lot of great entries that involved students doing things like hosting an Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program at a local elementary school, joining a Friends of NRA committee and establishing a Women On Target instructional shooting clinic.
Here are this year's winners - congratulations:
- $6,500 – Rebekah Abel, Johnstown, Ohio
- $6,500 – Amanda Krpan, Alachua, Florida
- $3,500 – Sarah Cox, Southern Pines, South Carolina
