ON TARGET FOR LIFE AWARDS & RECOGNITION PROGRAM

NASP announced the 2022 winners of the On Target for Life Awards and Recognition Program, which is intended to honor and celebrate the many instances where in-school archery, and those involved, are positively impacting the lives of the NASP archers each year.

Garry Cannon, of Skyline High School, was given the 2022 Superhero Award. This individual award is intended to recognize an unpaid volunteer that makes an outstanding positive impact on their NASP program or team. The award includes a $500 equipment grant.

Chelsi Leggett, NASP coach at Carl Junction High School, was named the 2022 NASP Coach of the Year for making an overwhelming positive difference in the lives of her student archers. The award also includes a $500 equipment grant.

MoNASP is coordinated through the Missouri Department of Conservation, 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. More than 200,000 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 get them outdoors.
