The recipients and their families were treated to dinner by Quail Forever and the photos were taken before the dinner. To qualify for the scholarships, the recipients each had to write a 200-word essay outlining their commitment to wildlife conservation, either in previous years or in future studies at college. These essays were then judged by a Quail Forever committee. Courtesy photos
