Grants support high school trap league

Local clubs or communities interested in receiving a grant to support their high school trap shooting team must have the application in before April 1. Existing teams that have received a grant in the past are not eligible.

“Game and Fish offers a grant option of up to $1,000 to teams that have never received a grant,” North Dakota Game and Fish Department education section leader Marty Egeland said. “Funds can be used to purchase gear needed for the team, such as eye and hearing protection, vests, shell bags and magnetic barrel rests.”

Interested applicants can print the high school trap league grant application online at the Game and Fish website,
