The National Rifle Association’s Youth Programs Department is pleased to announce the selection of six young people to serve as the 2016 Brownells/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors. During their term, these Ambassadors will provide a young person’s perspective on the shooting sports and serve as youth advisors on shooting sports topics involving young people. 

NRA’s Youth Cooperative Organizations such as Boy Scouts of America (BSA), National High School Rodeo Association, Royal Rangers, BSA Venturing, and USA Shooting nominated outstanding young people to represent their organization, Brownells, and the NRA at national-level events. Not only does the Youth Ambassador program encourage growth of the shooting sports, but it also encourages increased industry support of youth shooting.

“Each of these young people embodies excellence at the scholastic level, within their communities, and also in the shooting sports. Their ideas and perspectives can help us get more youth involved in shooting and they serve as an example of what young people can accomplish through participation in the shooting sports,” says Claudia Olsen, Youth Programs staff who oversees the program.

The five young men and one young lady chosen to serve as Ambassadors in 2016 are:

Christian Miller - Royal Rangers

 

Tony Chung - USA Shooting

 

Katy Davis - National High School Rodeo Association

 

Remington Little - NRA

 

Jackson Wiggs - BSA Venturing

 

Jacob Hochhausler - Boy Scouts of America

 
Congratulations!
