2017 Iowa Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic Is Only 4 Weeks Away
The 3rd Annual Iowa Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic is only 4 weeks away. It will be held on Tuesday September 12, 2017 at Targets on the Move in Ackley, Iowa.
In 2017 Targeting Excellence awarded a total of $184,000 in scholarships to 81 students. Iowa was able to award $22,000 in scholarships to 11Iowa students this year through the generous support of our 2016 Iowa sponsors and 2016 event proceeds. Nationally, our goal this year is to raise $225,000 in scholarships to be awarded in 2018. Attending a Targeting Excellence event is one way you can partner with our organization and ensure we can continue to support students next year.
