Are you a dedicated young marksman or markswoman with a passion for air rifle shooting? The Annual American Legion 3-Position Junior Air Rifle Championship offers an exciting opportunity for you to turn your skills into college scholarships. This prestigious competition is divided into two categories: Precision and Sporter, with generous scholarships provided by The American Legion and The Sons of the American Legion.
1. Precision Category:
- Scholarship: The winner will receive a substantial $5,000 in college scholarships.
2. Sporter Category:
- Scholarship: The winner will also receive a valuable $5,000 in college scholarships.
Moreover, even second place finishers in each category have the chance to earn scholarships. They will be awarded $1,000 in college scholarships, courtesy of The American Legion Auxiliary.
Scholarship recipients can look forward to utilizing their well-deserved awards upon enrollment at an accredited trade school, college, or university within the United States. These scholarships are designed to support your educational journey.
It’s important to note that all scholarship claims are issued as two-party checks, made payable to both the student and the educational institution they choose to attend.
To provide flexibility, scholarship recipients have a period of eight (8) years to utilize the total award. This allows for life experiences such as active military duty or religious missions while maintaining eligibility for the scholarship.
In addition to the scholarships, the winners in both the Precision and Sporter categories will embark on an expense-paid trip to The American Legion National Convention. At this prestigious event, they will be honored as part of the Youth Champions Delegation, receiving well-deserved recognition for their outstanding achievements.
If you’re a young shooting sports enthusiast with a talent for air rifle shooting, this scholarship opportunity is your chance to transform your skills into a brighter educational future. Pursue your passion and secure your place among the next generation of champions.
Prepare to take aim not only at your target but also at your academic goals with the Junior Shooting Sports Scholarship.
