Contests and Events

Local teams of parents, instructors, UI Extension personnel and interested community members are encouraged to work collaboratively in planning, advertising and hosting club, county and regional contests/events. These experiences let youth demonstrate their skills, interact with peers and have fun.

Local & Regional Contests

Providing opportunities for 4-H members to engage in properly supervised local and regional contests frequently gives youth an incentive to practice while building their competencies related to the safe and appropriate use of firearms/equipment. These events also enable youth to build positive relationships with peers, develop personal accountability and model ethical behavior/sportsmanship.

If your county is planning a shooting sports contest or activity, please share basic information and registration materials with the State 4-H Shooting Sports Coordinator for posting.

State Contests

State contests are offered in designated disciplines for youth ages 8 to 18. These also serve as qualifying events for eligible Idaho youth (ages 14-18) to advance to the National 4-H Shooting Sports Championships. State contests incorporate at least two of the three discipline events youth will encounter at the national level. Consult Idaho 4-H Shooting Sports Rules (PDF) for specific details.

The date and location for state contests will be updated, as soon as those details are confirmed. Counties will be notified when registration materials become available. For 2018, the discipline events at the State 4-H Shooting Sports Contest include:

June 8, 2018

  • Archery (compound) — Jerome Gun Club
  • Archery (recurve) — Jerome Gun Club
  • Hunting — Jerome Co. Fairgrounds
  • Smallbore Rifle — Jerome Gun Club

June 9, 2018

  • Air Rifle — Jerome Co. Fairgrounds

  • Shotgun — Twin Falls Gun Club

Registration & Rules

  • May 11, 2018 — Early registration for contestants and volunteers
  • May 25, 2018 — Last postmark date for contestant registrations. No registrations postmarked after May 25 will be accepted. 

Please review the state contest rules. For rifle and shotgun, junior and intermediate contestants will shoot half the "course of fire" noted in the rules. For questions or additional information please contact Jim Wilson.

Future Years

The plan is to add both handgun disciplines by 2020.
