USO-Wisconsin Adds 2016 Scholarships to SCTP Awards Program

The USO of Wisconsin launched a first-of-its-kind program in 2015 with its USO shooting scholarships awarded to 13 SCTP / military youth athletes. The USO partnered with SCTP to provide clay target shooting gear and ammunition for athletes whose parents serve in the military. The bar was set high for the selection criteria with emphasis on scholastic performance, community volunteerism, and leadership potential.

For 2016, the USO of Wisconsin is expanding that program by awarding $2,500 in college scholarships for next year’s high school seniors who are involved in SCTP. The scholarships will be available to athletes from Wisconsin whose parents are serving on active duty, in the National Guard, or Reserve Military.

The USO-Wisconsin Board of Directors noted, “We understand that when our military members serve, it often comes at the sacrifice of their families. We take great pride in serving the whole military family.”

We commend the USO-Wisconsin for this innovative program and their support of SCTP athletes, and we look forward to seeing other organizations follow their lead!

USO of Wisconsin Military Youth SCTP Shooting Scholarship

USO logoSome SCTP athletes in Wisconsin have a unique opportunity to get help with the purchase of the shooting supplies and equipment they need this year. The USO of Wisconsin is offering 10 scholarships to military youth — those under the age of 18 with a parent, guardian, or sibling currently serving in the U.S. military. Each scholarship awarded will total $300.

For military youth who shoot in the SCTP in Wisconsin, this is your chance to help reduce the expense of being involved in the clay target shooting sports.

If selected, awardees will receive the scholarship via a $300 credit with the SCTP. That credit will be available to use to purchase ammunition, shooting supplies, shooting gear, and safety equipment available through the SCTP.
