The 1st Annual NRA Youth Day was made possible by support of NRA Staff and also several sponsors that include, Aimpoint, Boyt Harness Company, Brownells, LaserShot, Henry Rifles, Marlin, Pyramyd Air, Remington, Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), and Winchester Ammunition. Youth Day consisted of several different events as well as a Sponsor Safari. The event was open to all youth regardless if they were an NRA member or not. Free six month NRA Youth Members were made available to those who wanted to become an NRA member. Youth Day was held in a hospitality room that consisted of different NRA Program tables and some interactive exhibits. The NRA Program tables that were present were, Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC), How to Start a Youth Program, Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S), InSights computers where youth could explore the different articles and features from InSights Online Magazine, and portraits of the Art Contest winners. The interactive exhibits that were present include, LaserShot, NRA 3 Gun AirSoft, and an Eddie Eagle coloring table. Over 500 Youths from all different walks of life and different ages filled the hospitality room with joy and excitement. The youth could also participate in a Sponsor Safari that occurred in the exhibit hall. The youth were given a Track Card and they had to visit each of the NRA Youth Day's Sponsor's booths. In each Sponsor's booths was an NRA Youth Ambassador that would sign off on the Sponsor Safari Track Cards. At the end of the Safari, the participants received a raffle ticket that was submitted for a drawing of prizes. Prizes were donated from Aimpoint, Boyt Harness Company, and Brownells.
