2017 Ohio Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic Is Only 4 Weeks Away

OH 2017 4 Weeks Away

The 2nd Annual Ohio Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic is only 4 weeks away.  It will be held on Thursday September 7, 2017 at The Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio.

In 2017 Targeting Excellence awarded a total of $184,000 in scholarships to 81 students. Ohio was able to award $37,000 in scholarships to 15 Ohio students this year through the generous support of our 2016 Ohio 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.
