If you are an NRA Woman who shoots and hunts safely and responsibly, you have already taken the first step in portraying the rapidly growing community of Second Amendment supporters in a positive light. Many of you are active on social media as influencers or bloggers, whether as a competitive shooter, firearms trainer or just a casual plinker who regularly posts images of your days on the range. Whether communicating to a member of the mainstream media, the “friendly” outdoor media—or even your neighbor—you automatically become an unofficial ambassador for the shooting and hunting community. You represent all of us, and your words and pictures tell many stories—both good and bad. So are you doing everything you can to make sure there are no negative takeaways?
The exclusive Ambassador Academy was created to address the need for well-trained firearm community ambassadors—whether through professional affiliation or casual media posting. The next session will take place at the acclaimed West Orlando Firearms Training Facility in Orlando, Fla., Feb. 13-17, 2021. Here students will learn how to more effectively communicate about the 2A while honing their knowledge and skills to be firearms ambassadors.
And best of all, one lucky NRA Woman will win a privately funded scholarship to attend this course, valued at $3,500. (No NRA funds are used for this sponsorship.)

If you are the winner, here’s what you’ll take away from this five-day course, founded by Benelli Pro-Shooter and D.C. Project Founder Dianna Muller, and taught by at least 10 subject-matter experts in the following areas: Social media strategy and analytics; film/editing; on-camera personality coaching; and friendly and hostile communications with a focus on the 2nd Amendment. Professional photographers will provide headshots, product shots and action shots. Students will also expand their defensive firearms knowledge by participating in a personal protection course that is the specialty of the host facility, woft.com.
The winner of the contest will receive full tuition toward the five-day academy; housing (based on double occupancy); jersey; swag bag, all loaner guns, gear and UTM ammunition; and breakfast and lunch daily. Transportation is not included.
Although many attendees have prior experience in the shooting sports, shooting experience is not required. Applicant must be at least 18 years old.
Submission deadline is Jan. 8, 2021 at 5 p.m. EST. A winner will be announced on Jan. 11, 2021. For official information on entering, please visit the Ambassador Academy website at visit pro3gunner.com/nra-women.
