2018 Minnesota Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic

MN Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic Starts in


Will you be There?

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 7th Annual Minnesota Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at Caribou Gun Club in Le Sueur, MN.   Targeting Excellence formed a Minnesota committee in 2013 making it the 2nd state to join the organization.  The first Minnesota fundraiser was held in 2013.  

Targeting Excellence awarded $30,000 to students in Minnesota 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.
