NRA Outstanding Achievement Youth Award Presented by Brownells
The NRA Outstanding Achievement Youth Award Presented by Brownells recognizes juniors and young adults who take an active part in the shooting sports through individual participation and educational pursuits. By meeting the requirements to be eligible for the award, youth gain a greater sense of responsibility and an appreciation for the variety of shooting sports opportunities available. Once a participant meets the requirements, he or she will receive the official NRA Youth Award certificate and medal recognizing the accomplishment and will also be eligible for our National prizes. Thanks to Brownell's contribution, our national award winners will receive:
