2011 Prois Award Contest Spotlights Women Hunters
Enter to Win a Hunting Trip of a Lifetime!
Próis Hunting & Field Apparel, the leading manufacturer of performance-driven hunting clothing for women, continues to celebrate women who dominate in the field with its annual Próis Award. The contest kicks off today, August 16, and all women hunters who are hardcore at heart are encouraged to enter.
The competition will be stiff, as there is only one winner who will take home the coveted prize: a hunt of a lifetime for elk, mule deer, whitetail, and wolf in the pristine Canadian Rockies with Savage Encounters. Plus, she’ll be fully outfitted with the latest hunting gear from top equipment manufacturers and Próis Awards sponsors--a killer package that rings in at more than $25,000 in value. A story about the winner's hunt, written by Editor in Chief Diana Rupp, will be published in a future issue of Sports Afield magazine.
“Próis and its contest partners are passionate about recognizing strong, successful female hunters who consider hunting a lifestyle, and are involved in conservation, management, and the hunting community,” says Kirstie Pike, CEO of Próis Hunting & Field Apparel. “We’re excited to kick off the start of the 2011 Próis Awards, and receive some amazing stories about fearless women who live to hunt--and hunt to live.”
The winner must have passion, determination, and a great story to tell that will inspire female hunters around the globe. If this sounds like you, visit www.Próishunting.com/Próisaward for details on how to enter. Submissions will be accepted until midnight, September 30.
Essays will be reviewed by a panel of industry expert judges, and the top 12 chosen will then be posted on the Próis Award website on October 15. Here the hunting community has until December 15 to cast their votes on which candidate they believe should be crowned the 2011 Próis Award Winner. The finalist with the most votes will officially be announced as the winner to the industry at both the 2012 Archery Trade Association Show in Columbus, Ohio, and the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
2011 Próis Awards sponsors include: Próis Hunting and Field Apparel, Savage Encounters, Outdoor Connection, Blacks Creek, Hunter Hills Journal, Ripcord Arrow Rest, Bowtech, Swarovski Optik, Bog-Pod, Acli-Mate, and Zamberlan.
