Remington Outdoor Federation Offers College Scholarships
I got this email from the North American Hunting Club today and thought it should be shared. Lately, I have mentioned our youth and how we need to get them and keep them involved in archery and hunting. Being an archer and a college grad, I think that the Remington Outdoor Federation (ROF) is doing something great here. Read on...
Teaching your son or daughter about hunting, shooting and the outdoors has always been important and rewarding, but now—thanks to Remington [Outdoor Federation]—it might even help you pay their college tuition. Remington [Outdoor Federation]recently teamed up with the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) to offer $3,000 in college scholarships.

Any college-bound student who registers for the 2010 NASP National Tournament is eligible to write an essay that could land him or her a $1,500 scholarship. Here's the question kids will address: "How has the National Archery in the Schools Program changed my life?"

Whoever hits the bull's-eye in 500 to 1,000 words will win $1,500. Second place gets a grand; third takes home $500. Nothing to sneeze at!

[Remington Outdoor Federation has] already hit the bull's-eye with this one. "We're encouraged by the fact that a significant percentage of NASP students reported that after participating in the archery program in school they are more interested in other shooting sports, including hunting," said Jim Moore, president of The Remington Outdoor Foundation.
So if you have a son or daughter on their way to college, wants to compete in the NASP National Tournament and can write an essay, go for it! When it comes to college, any scholarship is better than none. Good luck to all who enter!
