Who will help the NRA promote the shooting sports this year?
The selections have been finalized and the list has been released. We now have your Brownells/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors for this next year.
These six young supporters of the shooting sports truly make a difference in their community, and that's why they were chosen. They come from NRA Youth Cooperative Organizations all over the country, looking to involve themselves in the preservation of the shooting sports.
The Youth Ambassadors won't make their debut until the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas this January, but we'll be bringing you their stories leading up to the expo. If you miss them in Vegas, they'll also make appearances at the NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits in Houston, Texas next spring.
Let's see who was selected:
- Royal Rangers: Cris Herrera, 17 years old from Lafayette, Louisiana
- Boy Scouts of America: Maxson Boyd, 16 years old from Austin, Texas
- BSA’s Venturing: Ryan Mitchell, 20 years old from Grapevine, Texas
- USA Shooting: McKenna Dahl, 16 years old from Arlington, Washington
- National High School Rodeo Association: Dallas Beshears, 17 years old from Queens Creek, Arizona
- National Rifle Association: Christian Elsner, 18 years old from Parker, Colorado
Congratulations to our 2013 Ambassadors, and a big thank you to our friends at Brownell's for their continued support of NRA's Youth Programs.
