Help Pick the Color of the New “Archery in the Schools” Arrow


Archery is becoming exceedingly popular among young people. In fact, more students participate in organized archery than Little League baseball. Aside from just being fun, schools embrace the sport because it’s relatively inexpensive and allows students of all genders, shapes, and sizes to participate. Height is an advantage in basketball and strength in football, but archery is an equal empowering sport that anyone can master.

This is way more fun than a poster contest and by voting, participants get a discount coupon on new arrows. Here are the full details from Easton:
