ABout The Targeting Excellence Iowa Committee

Targeting Excellence was founded in 2013 with the vision, “To unite agribusinesses, production systems, and institutions of higher education in a common cause – to ensure the world’s food supply by providing scholarships for students committed to food animal agriculture.”

The 7th Annual Iowa Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic at Targets on the Move in Ackley, IA (Spring 2021).  Targeting Excellence formed an Iowa committee in 2015 making it the 4th state to join the organization.  The first Iowa fundraiser was held in 2015. 

Targeting Excellence awarded $11,500 to students in Iowa this year from the funds raised last year.  Help us increase the scholarship awards available for next year by making a one time or recurring donation today.

2020 Iowa Targeting Excellence Scholarship Drive

Let’s band together to Support Students in Food Animal Agriculture during this difficult time.

Now more than ever, we’re so grateful for the community that has funded, volunteered, celebrated, and advocated for Targeting Excellence through the years. Our mission of supporting students in food animal agriculture has not stopped in spite of the challenges presented by Covid-19. That’s why we’re asking you to help us fund the 2021 scholarships by becoming a donor today.

Our committee is actively planning to host our annual Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic in the spring if conditions allow. However, making a donation today is the safest, simplest, and most effective way to support our food animal ag students as we adapt to ever-changing circumstances due to COVID-19.


While all of us are facing great challenges at this time, we hope that you can find some peace knowing that you relieved some of the financial stress of being a student through your generosity.

On behalf of all of us at Targeting Excellence, thank you for being a part of our community. We wish you and your family health, safety, and happiness and want you to know that together, we can overcome all things.

Sincerely,
Targeting Excellence Board of Directors and Committee Members

I greatly appreciate receiving the scholarship. Due to all surrounding the COVID-19 quarantines, I’ve found out the jobs I typically work at full and part-time in the summer will not have positions for me. News of being awarded this scholarship could not have come at a better or more needed time. Receiving this scholarship will aid me in paying for my tuition at DMACC for the 2020-21 academic school year.
