The NRA Foundation has awarded $4,000 in scholarships to attendees of the 2015 Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.), a seven-day educational experience in Washington, DC for rising high school students. Scholarships will be paid directly to the accredited college or technical school of the student’s choice.
Once the summit is complete, participants have nine months to compete for the Y.E.S. Grand Scholarship by introducing NRA programs into their communities and creating a portfolio summarizing the experience. This year’s entries saw students performing a number of activities including hosting an 6th grade Hunter's Education Course joining a Friends of NRA committee, and giving speeches as multiple community service organizations.
The following students were selected from the 2015 Y.E.S. class’ entrants:


Trevar Fiscus

Juneau, AK





Delaney Yoder

Bremen, IN


Honorable Mention

Jacquelyn O'Brien

Fairfield, CT


Funding for Y.E.S. and the Grand Scholarship is provided by The NRA Foundation and Friends of NRA. For more information contact Event Marketing and Communications Coordinator Abigail Klein at (703) 267-1351, or email yes@nrahq.org
