North Dakota’s 4-H archery kicked off its circuit season

A total of 223 kids across the state competed in the southwest district archery meet at Nishu Bowmen. 

It’s organized by 4-H throughout the NDSU Extension program. 

The event consisted of three age divisions for kids 8 to 18 years old. They participated in bare bow and freestyle unlimited. 

NDSU Extension Agent, Karla Meikle, says archery is a skill that has a lot of benefits, especially for youth. 

“It gives kids a sense of responsibility, they have a commitment and it engages youth with other youth across the state. Most importantly it is great for self-esteem. So, we are creating great opportunities for kids to gain self-esteem within themselves and network,” said Meikle. 

The competition will travel throughout six cities in North Dakota. They will go to Watford City in a few weeks. 

The tournament started in Bismarck and this is the only archery tournament within 4-H in North Dakota.
