From Remington Outdoor Foundation
--The Remington Outdoor Foundation has partnered with the National Archery in the Schools Program® to offer $3,000 in scholarships to college-bound students who are registered to participate in the 2010 NASP® National Tournament.
"For the Remington Outdoor Foundation, offering NASP® scholarships falls right in line with our mission to support our partners' efforts to share hunting and target shooting traditions with youth, women and other participants," said Jim Moore, president of Remington Outdoor Foundation. "We're encouraged by the fact that a significant percentage of NASP® students reported they are more interested in other shooting sports, including hunting, since taking the archery program in school."
High school seniors who write and submit a 500 to 1,000 word essay that answers the question, "How has the National Archery in the Schools Program® changed my life?" can win a $1,500 first place scholarship. Second and third place winners will receive $1,000 and $500 respectively to help pay for their college education.
To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be registered to participate in the 2010 NASP® National Tournament, and winners will be announced at that event. For information about the world's largest archery tournament, which will be hosted May 7-8 in Louisville, Ky., visit https://archeryintheschools.org/.
The deadline to submit essays and completed applications is April 30. Students can find the scholarship guidelines and application form and submit their entry at Remington Outdoor Foundation High School Essay Contest or email to email@example.com. Students and instructors can receive NASP program updates and information by visiting NASP®'s Facebook Fan page.
If you know a college-bound high school senior who is participating in the 2010 NASP® National Tournament, encourage him or her to write an essay and possibly win a scholarship.
