The conclusion of day two of competition is also the conclusion of the cub and youth events at this year’s edition of The Vegas Shoot.
Top finishers in the events were awarded scholarships totalling $39,000 to be used towards funding higher education and pursuing their passion for the sport during the youth and collegiate award ceremony on Saturday, February 5.
Youth and cub divisions at The Vegas Shoot score 30 arrows a day on Friday and Saturday and are ranked by score.
Scholarships are awarded to the top three shooters of the youth and collegiate ago categories in the compound, recurve, bowhunter and recurve barebow divisions.
An additional $1,000 scholarship was given to one young male and one young female who participated in the junior essay contest. The essay topic only needed to fit an archery theme.
Winner Zach chose to write about the art of the sport in his essay.
“I didn’t shoot my best, but I put my heart into this essay. It sounds cheesy but I’m pretty happy with what I made,” said Zach.
“It explains how I feel about archery and how I feel that archery is a misconception art, and how some people don’t really understand the hard work and dedication that is put into the spot.”
Scholarships at The Vegas Shoot are awarded by the National Field Archery Association in partnership with the Easton Foundations.
