Twenty Six Schools Receive Scholastic Shooting Grants

Grants supply badly needed funds for student participation.

The Scholastic Shooting Trust has approved school grants totaling $27,095 to twenty-six school shooting teams. Without these funds, many students would not be able to participate on a school shooting team. Larry Potterfield, President of MidwayUSA Foundation, said, “It’s vitally important to provide these kids the opportunity to participate.” The trust allocated the funds in August and the teams will receive the funds this fall.

The Scholastic Shooting Trust was formed to provide funding for shooting sports education in traditional public and private high schools, colleges and universities, so that participating students can improve their confidence, discipline and leadership skills. Alumni, families of team members and community members fund the grants through donations to the Scholastic Shooting Trust so that youths have a better opportunity to compete in the shooting sports. The Trust ( is a mission of the MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. started by Larry and Brenda Potterfield in 2007 to support education in shooting sports, hunting, firearms safety and outdoor skills.


Thanks to MidwayUSA for the great work they are doing for our children and our Second Amendment Rights!
