ABout The Targeting Excellence Minnesota 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 8th Annual Minnesota Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2020 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 $22,000 to students in Minnesota 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.
