when I was about your age, I earned sponsors for BMX racing. here's what you do:
Write a letter that says who you are, what you are doing with calling and waterfowl in general, and what you want to do. Also include how a company's sponsorship of you would benifit you and how it woudl benifit them. let them know what your plans are with calling (how many competitions you'll be in this year, etc). ALSO mention anyone that you hunt/call with that may be well known.
Include pictures, and if possible, maybe a DVD with you calling on it. Let them know you are excited about representing their products.
when you are sponsored, you are a sales person. You are given free merchandise, or sometimes money and in exchange you are supposed to basically sell the product.
