Target: Scholarships

Each fall the Target: Scholarships committee plans an event at the Cardinal Center in Marengo, Ohio to raise funds for the Ohio AgriBusiness Association Education Trust scholarship program. In addition to a day of sporting clays, OABA members have the opportunity to network with their colleagues, while they continue to support aspiring agribusiness professionals.

The Educational Trust annually provides more than $45,000 in scholarship dollars that is provided annually to students enrolled in an agriculture-related field attending The Ohio State University and OSU Agricultural Technical Institute, Clark State Community College, Central State University and Wilmington College.

Registration is available for teams of 4 or individuals. Participants will shoot 100 target rounds.  Ammunition (12 gauge and 20 gauge) will be provided for each individual, as well as a golf cart for each team. Participants are responsible for supplying their own gun, a limited supply may be available to rent through the Cardinal Center. 

Doors will open at 9:00 a.m. for registration and announcements. Shooting will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. in groups of 4. Lunch will follow the shooting.
