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 The Utah Scholastic Clay Target Program (UTYESS) has been awarded a $25,000 grant by Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA. This grant will provide funding to promote Utah’s youth shooting sports activities.

Over 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. For the remainder of 2018, MidwayUSA Foundation also has a monthly match for all of our shooting teams with a MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment. Each month $60,000 in matching dollars is added to team endowments nationwide. Every shooting team that receives a donation or contributes to their MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment will receive a match.

“We are forever thankful to Larry and Brenda Potterfield and the MidwayUSA Foundation. Without their overwhelming support over the past several years Utah SCTP, each of our teams, and youth shooting sports, in general, would not be what it is today,“ said Brian Beard, President, UTYESS. “Larry and Brenda Potterfield and the MidwayUSA Foundation have greatly changed the future of youth shooting sports in Utah!”
