There is a great opportunity to connect your local community to “The Hunger Games,” the blockbuster movie that had the third-largest box office opening in history over the weekend.
The NWTF, a national non-profit conservation organization that teaches archery classes for youth and women in your area, has information and sources that can generate stories that tie in with the movie.
Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of The Hunger Games, survives in the post-apocalyptic movie thanks in part to her archery training. Fortunately, learning to shoot a bow like Katniss is well within the reach of most people.
The NWTF introduces youth and women to archery and the outdoors through its JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship) and Women in the Outdoors outreach programs. Archery training is one of the most popular activities at JAKES and Women in the Outdoors events nationwide.
