“Each year we are inspired by the dedication student-athletes show and the support of their parents and coaches,” said JW Worthen, director of programs for Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “These athletes represent the future of outdoorsmen and women in Tennessee and ultimately the future of our great outdoors.”

The governing body of the sport in Tennessee is the Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program, an initiative of Tennessee Wildlife Federation. Tennessee Wildlife Federation is one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to the conservation of Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources. 

Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program recruits youth into an outdoor lifestyle by introducing them to shooting sports. Those who participate in outdoor recreation are eight times more likely to support conservation issues.
