2017 Eastern Regional 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament

— Written By

 

On August 26, 2017, over 200 youth from the Northeast and Southeast districts participated in the 2017 Eastern Regional 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament at the Eastern 4-H Center in Columbia on Saturday, August 26, 2017. Youth participated in Archery, Rifle, Shotgun, Air Pistol, Air Rifle, Muzzleloading, and .22 Small Bore Pistol Disciplines in hopes to qualify for

the NC State 4-H Shooting Sports Tournament. Pitt County 4-H had over 19 youth participate in this year’s tournament. The focus of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. The National 4-H Shooting Sports Program stands out as an example. In this program, youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of hunting and archery. As well as many educational lessons in the Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) field.

The activities of the program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics. Following this tournament, several Pitt County 4-H’ers will go on to compete in the state 4-H  Shooting Sports Tournament on September 23, 2017, at Millstone  4-H Camp in Ellerbe, NC.
