We know there are many women diligently working in the field to promote and defend the Second Amendment, hunting, or the shooting sports. But are they being recognized for their efforts? If not, maybe you should probably nominate them for one of NRA’s Women’s Awards. But do it fast as the deadline is November 1, 2009.
The NRA annually presents two awards to women who, through education, volunteerism and legislative activism, have made exceptional contributions to Second Amendment rights and/or the shooting sports in support of the goals of the NRA. The first of those awards, the Sybil Ludington Women’s Freedom Award, recognizes women who have made such contributions at the national level. A second award, the Marion P. Hammer Woman of Distinction Award, honors achievements made at the state, regional and local levels.
Named for a heroine of the American Revolution, the Sybil Ludington Women’s Freedom Award has been presented annually since 1995. The Marion P. Hammer Woman of Distinction Award was created in 2004 and is named in honor of the first female president of the NRA.
Time is running out to nominate someone you know for these prestigious honors!
