LEAD THE LEGACY

Are you an outstanding high school sophomore or junior actively engaged in academics, leadership and community service? Time to apply for the 2017 Youth Education Summit taking place July 24-July 30, 2017. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, January 13, 2017.

BE PART OF A UNITED FRONT!

Every summer we select 45-50 impressive high school students from across the country to participate in a week long competitive fellowship in our nation’s capital. The week wraps up with a celebratory dinner where $15,000 is awarded out to those exceptional students who embody leadership
as both individuals and as a collective. Students with an interest in becoming NRA Ambassadors can submit applications the following year for an additional $25,000 Grand Scholarship.

The mission of the Y.E.S program is to give students the opportunity to explore their passion for the American government, Bill of Rights and the US Constitution, encourage them to become responsible citizens who participate in the democratic process, and empower them to return to their communities with proactive voices for the Second Amendment.

Entry into the Y.E.S program requires submission of a completed application form, high school transcript, a three-page essay on the Second Amendment, a one page personal statement, and three letters of recommendation. Since its inception in 1996, more than 800 students have graduated from Y.E.S. and over $500,000 in college scholarships have been awarded.

LEAD TODAY. TRANSFORM TOMORROW. INSPIRE CHANGE.
