2018 North Carolina Sporting Clay Scholarship Banner

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 6th Annual North Carolina Targeting Excellence Sporting Clay Scholarship Classic on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at Drake Landing in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Targeting Excellence formed an North Carolina committee in 2013 making it the 1st state to join the organization. The first North Carolina fundraiser was held in 2013. 

Targeting Excellence awarded $33,000 to students in North Carolina 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.
