SEARSBORO – More than 130 youth from 23 Iowa counties participated in the Iowa 4-H Safety and Education in Shooting Sports State Shooting Competition held on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Brownell’s Big Springs Shooting Range in Searsboro.

The Iowa 4-H Shooting Sports Program provides activities at all levels throughout the state to meet our overall goal to “empower youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with a caring adult through a shooting sports related activity.”
