HOT SPRINGS – -( The Arkansas National Archery in the Schools Program – part of the National Archery in the Schools Program – will hold its state tournament Feb. 5-6 at Summit Arena in Hot Springs. Over 1,500 kids from 72 schools around Arkansas are scheduled to compete.

The archery program involves students beginning in the fourth grade continuing through their high school senior year. Students learn archery skills, as well as an outdoor hobby they may enjoy for the rest of their lives.

In addition to the archery tournament, Hunters Feeding the Hungry will be holding a food drive at the door. Spectators will receive a ticket for their canned food item. The ticket will make donors eligible for door prizes.

The Arkansas Bowhunters Association will be holding a 3-D archery tournament simultaneously for all of the NASP students. There will be other exhibitors at the tournament, including the AGFC mobile aquarium. The top shooter shoot-off will be held for each division at the end of each day of competition with the scholarship money being awarded on Saturday.
