NASP® Academic Archer Program Equipment Winners for 2016/2017
- Posted May 23, 2017 5:54 AM
Registration for the Academic Archer program concluded for the 2016/2017 school
year on April 30th with 19,381 students enrolled into the program. Educators from
40 US states, three Canadian Provinces, and schools from the British Virgin Islands
implemented the NASP® Academic Archer Program with their students.

For the 2016/17 school year, Easton Technical Products, a long time NASP®
sponsor, became the title sponsor of the Academic Archer program. ETP recognized
the value of academic emphasis for all students early on, and wanted to help NASP®
promote the concept. Since then, growth has been substantial.

Mark Pezzoni, President of Easton Technical Products said, “The NASP® Academic
Archer program is a great inspirational and motivational driver of academic and
archery achievement. Perhaps Anna Howard said it best in a letter she wrote: “…I
like the NASP® Archery Program because it helped me through a hard time when
my best friend died from cancer. It has helped with my concentration on my school
work, it also makes me try even harder to get good grades, so I can continue to shoot
and qualified for Academic Archer…”

Mark continued, “I feel that our partnership with NASP® is one of the clearest
examples where we can illustrate the wisdom of investing in our youth. Hearing
from students like Anna Howard, and seeing the students and families participating
in the program at the National Tournament and beyond, simply makes me feel
honored to be a sponsor and promoter of what is good for kids.”

Following the close of registration for Academic Archer, NASP® conducted a
random computer drawing from among all registered students and selected ten
student names. Each of these young people won a new Genesis Bow of their choice
and custom Easton AA Arrows! NASP® would like to thank a generous sponsor who
purchased the bows, and Easton Archery for donating the arrows.

Academic Archer will be opened in early September for the 2017/2018 school year.
NASP® is hoping to see the number top 50,000 students soon. It is our intention to
increasingly send the strongest message possible, about how teaching archery as
part of the school curriculum, is important to the mission of educators.
As you can see, the ten lucky Academic Archers were very excited to receive their
new equipment. Perhaps a qualifying student from your local school will be among
the winners next year!
