Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Brian BeardrPLEASANT GROVE – The Utah Scholastic Clay Target Program (Utah SCTP) has been awarded a $80,000 grant by Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA. This is in addition to $110,000 awarded to Utah SCTP in March 2017 from Larry and Brenda Potterfield for a total grant of $190,000 in 2017. These grants will provide funding to promote Utah’s youth shooting sports activities.

Nearly half of the grant will be used to match Utah’s youth shooting team fundraising dollars that are donated to MidwayUSA Foundation’s Team Endowment Program. This program allows individual teams to grow their own endowment to pay for team expenses. “It is crucial for shooting teams in our organization to be engaged in self-preservation and fundraising for them to remain successful. Being able to provide a match for their fundraising efforts is a big motivator for our teams to engage. It is our hope to be able to match each dollar raised through fundraising at a rate of 2:1. We would not have been able to provide this support to our teams without the generosity and passion of Larry and Brenda Potterfield,” Brian Beard, President, Utah SCTP.

Funds generated with our match will be donated to Utah youth shooting teams through the MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment Program. For the remainder of 2017, MidwayUSA Foundation is also matching Team Endowment donations at a rate of 2:1; essentially providing a combined match to team fundraising dollars at 4:1. The 2:1 match for both Utah SCTP and MidwayUSA Foundation will end in 2017. If you would like to learn more about taking advantage of this 4:1 match for your youth shooting team, please contact Utah SCTP at (801) 210-1201.
