Columbia, MO -(Ammoland.com)- The MidwayUSA Foundation has announced the latest winners in their Constituent Challenge, an incentive program to reward active shooting teams that raise money for their Team Endowment Account with the MidwayUSA Foundation.
Each month, the top three teams that add the most money into their account win additional funds. Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, generously donate the endowment funds each winning team will receive. East Grand Forks Senior High School from East Grand Forks, Minnesota will receive $15,000 for their first place win.
The Bald Knob Bulldogs Trap Shooting Team from Bald Knob, Arkansas placed second and will received $10,000. Third place and $5,000 in endowment funds was awarded to the Blocton Bullets Junior Marksmanship Team from Woodstock, Alabama. MidwayUSA Foundation’s Constituent Challenge will continue through November.
Along with this incentive, the Potterfields contribute a 2:1 match for every private donation made to the Foundation, as well. Their contribution for June, alone, was $230,255.
“Shooting teams provide wonderful opportunities for our youth, however there is often little or no funding available, so its up to us to help,” said Larry Potterfield.
