FAIRFAX, VA-The National Rifle Association has awarded $10,000 in scholarships through this year's Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.), a 7-day, expenses-paid educational experience in Washington, D.C.

Launched in 1996, the Y.E.S. program is an effort by the National Rifle Association to foster America's youth in becoming more engaged and knowledgeable citizens at both national and local levels. Funding for the program is provided by the NRA Foundation with monies raised by Friends of NRA, the grassroots fund-raising program started in 1993 and run entirely by volunteers.

While in the nation's capital, students learned the significance of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and developed an understanding of government and the importance of being an active participant. As part of the summit, students toured the Capitol, National Archives Museum, Pentagon, Mt. Vernon, NRA Headquarters Shooting Range and NRA National Firearms Museum, and many of the memorials and monuments in Washington, D.C.

The recipients of these scholarships demonstrated extraordinary leadership skills during the 2009 Summit.
