Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/30/2017
About 1,600 of Wisconsin's youth archers are set to gather this weekend to aim for top honors at the 2017 Wisconsin National Archery in the Schools Program state tournaments. The annual event is scheduled for March 31 through April 1 at the Woodside
Convention and Expo Center in Wisconsin Dells.
The competition will feature boy and girl archers between grades 3-12 from 66 Wisconsin schools. State Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp says the program offers school children a chance to experience a sport they may not have known was available
"The schools themselves have been effective in keeping this program growing year after year by introducing students to the sport and encouraging them as teammates in competition," she said.
Students at this year's state tournament will compete for individual and team awards in elementary, middle and high school divisions, as well as a chance to qualify for the program's national tournament in Louisville, Kentucky. That tournament is expected to
attract more than 15,000 archers from all over the country.
