USA -(Ammoland.com)- The Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Browning will again partner for the 2017 season in a big way.
Browning, returning as a Titanium Sponsor of the SCTP, will sponsor the official “Browning Scholarship” at this year’s SCTP National Championships.
Above its normal support of the program and its teams, Browning will donate several firearms that will be raffled and auctioned off.
All proceeds will be utilized in a single scholarship awarded to an athlete shooting a Browning shotgun in the 200 target Trap Singles at this year’s nationals to be held at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio, July 8-15.
“We are excited to be a part of the SCTP again this year,” Rafe Nielsen, Browning’s communications manager, said. “The success of the Browning Scholarship program in 2016 shows that the SCTP is the leading organization for developing and supporting youth shooting. We’re looking forward to a bigger and better year in 2017, and are proud to be a part of an organization that gives so much back to the youth shooting community.”
Tom Wondrash, SCTP national director, said, “We can’t say ‘thank you’ enough for the tremendous support and confidence that Browning entrusts in our nationally recognized program! And what a great opportunity for an athlete at this year’s tournament to make a huge dent in his or hers college tuition. Browning has really hit it out of the park yet again for SCTP athletes.”
