Idaho State Youth Education Summit

Idaho sophomores and juniors are invited to apply to participate in the Idaho State Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.), part of a larger national program through the NRA Foundation - a non-profit, non-political charitable affiliate of the National Rifle Association.  This innovative civics program brings participating students to the Idaho Capitol from March 12 to 15 to gain first-hand knowledge about our branches of government and to meet state elected officials. Students also engage in public speaking, problem-solving, participate in firearms training at a local gun range administered by certified firearms instructors and visit government agencies and historical venues. Meals, lodging, and materials are provided to participating students at no cost.
 
The selection of students for the program is competitive. One student participants will be chosen at the end of the Idaho program to attend the national Y.E.S. program in Washington D.C. on July 13-19, 2020. Up to $50,000 total in scholarships will be awarded among successful participants at this national Y.E.S. program.
