Entry Description
 
STATEHOUSE – State Representative Suzanne Crouch (R-Evansville) is pleased to announce the opening of the 16th annual National Foundation for Women Legislators and the National Rifle Association (NFWL/NRA) Bill of Rights Scholarship Contest.

Female high school juniors and seniors have the opportunity to enter the scholarship contest, and six winners will receive a $3,000 college scholarship along with an all-expense-paid trip to the NFWL Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. The Conference will be November 20-22 at the Ritz-Carlton.

 Each applicant must be sponsored by a female legislator from their state and, if chosen as a scholarship winner, will be accompanied to the NFWL Annual Conference by that sponsor.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for young women to think critically on issues directly affecting their generation of women and craft answers to some very serious questions,” Rep. Crouch said. “I am more than willing to sponsor any eligible applicant, and I encourage teachers to make their students aware of this fantastic opportunity.”

Applicants may choose from two essay topics, and their answers will be judged by the Scholarship Committee on basic grammar and punctuation as well as historical research, insight and perspective, demonstrated understanding of the American Constitution and Bill of Rights as a whole, inspirational quality and meaningful personal connection.

NFWL/NRA Scholarship Application Requirements:

1. Completed Essay Contest Verification Form (with a copy sent in advance)
2. Two (2) copies of your essay
