In lieu of a scholarship, the NIFRW initiated an Essay Contest to various Bonners Ferry High School to promote Americanism in the community.  This years winners were:  1st Place - Zach Dennis, 2nd Place - Abby Davis, and Third Place - Amy Holman.  Fifteen students participated in the essay contest.  They were awarded Certificates of Participation for their hard work.  In the future, various topics will be selected and grade level appropriate will be formulated by the Scholarship Committee. The monetary award will differ with elementary, Jr. high, and High school. The essay will plant a seed for future young Republicans in our local community.
