The 2013 Brownells/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors get a new addition
Fairfax, Virginia - We announced the selection of six new Brownells/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors for 2013 a month ago. These shooting sports representatives were chosen from NRA Youth Cooperative Organizations because of their ability to make a difference in their communities.
These ambassadors represent the Boy Scouts of America, the National High School Rodeo Association, USA Shooting, the Royal Rangers, BSA Venturing and the NRA. Unfortunately, we discovered that this year's chosen NRA representative would be unable to join his fellow Ambassadors during their official appearances — a replacement needed to be found. We hope to have the details on that replacement sometime next week.
The Youth Ambassador program wasn't created just to encourage the growth and preservation of the shooting sports. It was also meant as a means of increasing industry support of youth shooting. This support comes from corporate leaders like Brownells. The primary sponsor of the Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors program, Brownells offers participants a wide array of benefits ranging from cash awards to travel opportunities as well as the opportunity to meet national shooting celebrities.
Now that they're back up to full strength, this year's Youth Ambassador class can concentrate on preparing for their first appearance at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Following that, the next time you can see them all together will be at the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston.
Each of these young adults has an amazing story about their activities in the community and their passion for the shooting sports. We'll be telling you all about them later right here on NRAblog.
