Student archers from Missouri’s National Archery in the Schools Program (MoNASP) competed in the 2024 Western and Eastern National Bullseye and 3D Tournaments this spring. The Western National Tournament was held April 26-27 in Sandy, Utah. The Eastern National Tournament was held May 9-11 in Louisville, Kentucky.

MoNASP is coordinated through the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC), the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation (MCHF), and the Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM) in partnership with more than 700 participating schools and numerous supporting organizations throughout the state. Around 80,000 Missouri students participate in the program.

MoNASP is an affiliate of NASP and promotes education, self-esteem, and physical activity for students in grades 4-12 through participation in the sport of archery. Statistics show school archery programs improve students’ school attendance, increase their self-esteem and physical activity, help them relate to subject matter, and help them get outdoors.
