Will you be There?


IA Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic Starts in

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.”

Join us for the 4th Annual Iowa Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at Targets on the Move in Ackley, IA.  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 $16,000 to students in Iowa this year from the funds raised last year.  Help us increase the scholarship awards available for next year by participating in this year’s event as a sponsor, participant, or volunteer.
