The top teams comprised of shooters from these organizations will be recognized with Special Recognition Awards. All shooters must be from the same chapter of the same organization. For example, if all squad members are 4-H, but from different chapters, this will not qualify for these Special awards. Pre-registration is required to be considered for these awards. Pre-registration Deadline is July 18, 2016.
