Young Minnesota Archers Win Lifetime Licenses

State archery tournament winners receive lifetime licenses

A student from North Campus High and another from Grand Rapids High each received their choice of a lifetime hunting or fishing license for winning the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament held in March. Dozens of other winners in various categories were also honored.

Chantelle Skarda of North Campus High School in White Bear Lake finished first in the female category and Ryan Dumm of Grand Rapids High School finished first in male category for individual high school competition. In addition to lifetime licenses, Skarda and Dumm also received Genesis bows.

"Nearly 600 students from throughout the state participated in the tournament," said Kraig Kiger, DNR shooting sports program administrator. "The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) keeps involving more schools, more students and more families in a safe and supervised activity that can last a lifetime."

What a fantastic deal for the state of Minnesota, as well as the lucky kids who won not only a life time license, but a new bow as well.
 
With hunter numbers declining across the country, more states need ot get on-board with programs like this-everyone wins.

I agree.  That lifetime license will wind up being worth thousands of dollars if those kids become lifelong hunters.  I'd love to win something like that now, and I'm 45!
