Gold Medal Clubs

goldmedal.jpgEach year the National Rifle Association recognizes outstanding clubs that have gone above and beyond by striving to meet NRA's goals. Don't miss out on the opportunity to apply or renew your club for the NRA Gold Medal Award! Meeting the Gold Medal standard is a great way to show your pride and support for the NRA and the Second Amendment.

NRA Gold Medal Club Award Criteria

Clubs must meet ALL of the following criteria to become an NRA Gold Medal Club:

  • Be a 100% NRA Club (provide membership list or by-laws)
  • Have a Club Newsletter (please send one copy with application)
  • Belong to the NRA State Association in your state (please provide proof of membership)
  • Have administered or currently incorporate a NRA Youth Program into your club agenda
  • Be an active participant in the NRA Membership Recruiting Program


  • Priority status for NRA Range Grants.
  • Free materials for select NRA Sports programs offered on a quarterly basis

Please submit an application should your organization meet all of the above criteria. Your club will receive a wall plaque to proudly show its achievement. A placard of the awarded year will be sent to your club each year you renew. Clubs are required to reapply each year in order to maintain Gold Medal status.

The deadline for 2017 NRA Gold Medal Awards is February 15, 2017. Applications will be mailed out to all NRA Affiliated Clubs that have given proof of 100% NRA Membership in the month of December. To access the application online, please click here.
