Winners Announced for the Big Idea Contest
The NFAA is excited to announce three winners for the Big Idea Contest! Members were asked to submit their best ideas for growing the sport of archery on behalf of their local NFAA club or shop. Nearly 100 ideas were received and narrowed down to a Top 10 by a qualified panel of judges. NFAA members then voted on their favorites and helped to select the winners. The winning clubs received a grant to put toward growing archery in their area. "I am grateful that I can help others experience the passion and introduce them to a discipline that only Archery can initiate. It's a good place to be when you're Archery strong all day long!" exclaimed Mike McQueary, winner of the First Place prize.
Congratulations to all winners and thank you to everyone for participating in the inaugural Big Idea Contest!
