The NRA Foundation has awarded $15,000 in scholarships to attendees of the 2014 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 Eddie Eagle GunSafe program at a local elementary school, joining a Friends of NRA committee and establishing a Women On Target instructional shooting clinic.
 
The following students were selected from the 2014 Y.E.S. class’ entrants:
